Who would have thought there still are bands to promote grave Doom Metal... which was popular 20 years ago...?! The three Finns have released their second album and I can say it is a great sample of virtuosity having no new elements but featuring a marvelous successful mixture of styles (between chanted melodious peaceful ones and those aggressive noisy ones)... and the atmosphere thus created is so grave depressed and gloomy. We have here four extremely long tracks, which become even boring, and some other short ones but in lack of any structure. If you want to have an idea try to put in the same room bands like BLACK SABBATH, CATHEDRAL, ST. VITUS, RAVEN, TROUBLE, PENTAGRAM or SOLITUDE AETURNUS... and then you will know if the Finnish band is a success or not. I guess this could be a revelation for fans of the up mentioned bands and perhaps an interesting album (at most!) for the rest of us!
