Any attempt needs and requires appreciation! But this goes for a promising issue. If it sounds bad, well, there is alternative: either give up or rehearse day after day until reaching a reasonable level! I'd say these Portuguese didn't hear of such and, despite the professional look of the CD, they build up a lamentable music, risky to be praised and easy to be criticized. The mixing part is not of quality and finally the music becomes annoying to be re-listened to. On a Melodic Doom/Death Metal structure, REQUIEM leaves place to different other shades like Progressive, Gothic, Rock or Heavy Metal, with aggressive male voices and a pathetic female one. Not much of a surprise, the result is pessimistic, a mixture of styles, in lack of a coherent structure, a lousy interpretation and a mediocre melodic line. It is such a pity for the waste with such an interesting logo and a video presentation included on CD!
