"These Low Lands" on the limited edition digipak (and on the "Don't Fall Asleep" single) is a cover of "Alavilla Mailla" originally performed by Timo Rautiainen & Trio Niskalaukaus. The title and the lyrics were translated to English by Tomi Tuomaala and Jani Rämö for Swallow The Sun's version.

Guest review by

Swallow The Sun's third album was probably one of the most expected returns in the Doom spectre this year, and for good reasons. After the immediate, and probably somewhat unexpected impact of "The Morning Never Came" in 2003, and the good reception of its successor, "Ghosts Of Loss", I think many were curious to know if Swallow The Sun's consistency was to be maintained, or if, instead, they'd crumble in the usually difficult third work. Thankfully, it was the first option that turned out to be the correct one.

Rating: 5 I had some "hope" on this album, but seriously, I couldn't make it to the last song before being put to sleep.

Well, I think it's their best album (I own them all) and I have to say it just kept getting better and better the more I listened to it.

Just give it another chance. If you like the band, I think you'll like this album too.
