Staff review by

This is the first release of the Swedish Gothic Doom Metallers.
And it's a bit different to their upcoming releases; here you can hear that they originate from the Death Metal scene.
Brennare haven't really develop his voice to what is shall be on their upcoming releases.
But I don't think that the voice Brennare use on later Lake of Tears albums should fit as nicely in to this album as the voice he has here.

  I know this band long time but more gothic/doom stuff, so I didnt know what to expect in this album, since its more death/doom and not as band lateher works, good one, old school sound, good lyrics specely songs Eyes Of The Sky and Upon The Highest mountains.... I will stick whit whole bands discography in next weeks , but this maybe most underated bands album , old school death/doom fans would like it but whit clean vocals, not growls what I like most into this one
