There seems to be something sinister lurking beneath the beautiful landscapes of New England. Edgar Allan Poe, H. P. Lovecraft, and Stephen King, those American masters of the horror genre have been born and raised there, where they have also created their dark writings. It is hardly surprising that a band hailing from the infamous town of Salem, Massachusetts such as 1476 have created an album, which is heading down a dark road. Yet "In Exile" is not telling stories about witches, ghouls, or tentacled beings emerging from the depths. It is we, the people, who are on this path. On "In Exile", each song represents a world of its own. It all started, when singer and multi-instrumentalist Robb Kavjian pondered upon that ancient question of where do people go when they die. In his mind, he started to imagine real persons and imaginary characters as mystical beings or deities. These avatars served as spiritual guides to their personal worlds during meditations that used visualisation techniques. This concept of individual worlds in the afterlife led to a stylistically quite diverse album, which does not make it easier to describe the band's sound. "In Exile" contains elements of folk, rock, metal, punk, and also a healthy pinch of post-punk, which can be summed up loosely as 'wayward occult rock'. For all those, who like their music outside of genre confines and who always wanted Dante as their personal guide to the infernal depths: "In Exile" offers radiant paths to take into exciting worlds beyond our reality.
