Lloyd James Where Empathica has an icy frigid feeling to it (in a good way), by contrast Beautiful Ghosts has a real warmth through its melancholic textures. A fantastic album that has no weak spots. Favorite track: Beautiful Ghosts.

nøah Surprisingly tender, so far as black metal usually goes. Beautiful amalgamation of a wide range of influences; warm and bright, but with a melancholy more often found in further reaches of the 'post-metal,' or 'blackgaze' sound. Worthy of many labels, but hard to fit snugly into one, as the best music often is.

Take my genre prescriptions and knowledge of metal with a grain of salt. I don't listen to a ton of metal but I know what I like. This is that. Favorite track: Autumn & Everley.

dweller The year I found love for the first time in a long time, Unreqvited releases this beauty. This record captures all the conflicting emotions of pain, confusion, joy, gratitude which are connected with leaving the past and devoting your soul to someone pure.
At first listen, I wasn't sure how I felt about it because of the previous more darker tones I fell in love with, but the stunning artwork made me try once more and thats how I fell in love for the second time this year! <3 Favorite track: Beautiful Ghosts.

about

Pop music basically has one universal topic: love, which is probably the very reason why metal bands generally shy away from that subject like the plague. With his sixth UNREQVITED album, "Beautiful Ghosts" driving force and sole member 鬼 has set out to fearlessly explore this for headbangers rather "scary" emotion. According to the multi-instrumentalist there are strong themes of love, passion, and devotion on this record.

As a result of journeying into his mind and collecting a wide range of emotions, 鬼 has included many lighter and more uplifting passages than previously on "Beautiful Ghosts", although dark twists are balancing the score. New elements include a significant use of clean vocals throughout the album and there are even playfully progressive rhythms as in the opening track 'All Is Lost'. The core elements that have shaped UNREQVITED in the past remain active as well. The massive anthemic refrains from "Mosaic I: L'amour Et L'ardeur" (2018) are equally present as the simple melancholic melodies from the 2016 debut album "Disquiet" and the orchestral grandeur of "Empathica" (2020).

Ever since 鬼 conceived UNREQVITED as a special musical vehicle for his multi-faceted creative output and brought it to light in 2016, his project has been a constantly shape-shifting and stylistically wide roaming creature. With "Beautiful Ghosts", the Canadian is at the same time gathering the strands of his previous works and taking an innovative step forward that makes it even harder to slap just one label onto his sound. "Beautiful Ghosts" applies a rich palette of musical colours, hues, and shades that are passionately blended together by the theme of "love".
