Lake Of Tears is one of the most original and passionate bands out there...if somebody doesn't agree with that well...you can stick to br00tal Death Metal and the likes.

One great thing is that every single album manages to remain a unique, enthralling experience, even though all of them share that thing that makes Lake of Tears what it is. They're bloody hypnotizing! Don't be surprised if you listen to a song just once and after days and weeks it still pops out annoyingly from your subconscious, as clear and loud as in the moment you heard it!

Rating: 8 This is a gem of an album......and this is coming from someone who is not at all a fan of Doom Metal. Don't miss this one.

Same here, not a fan of Doom at all but this album is really good. I would highlight So Fell Autumn Rain and then Demon You...

Yep, it's a great album (it gets an 8.5/10 from me), though it's more gothic than doom if you ask me. Headstones and A Crimson Cosmos are more doom than this.

Rating: 10 It's no gothic nor doom. It's something with something. Mostly prog-rock with some goth rock touches.

  Weakest album (if we take in order what I have heard so far)
its more gothic, more music not metal , but well comparing to other non metal albums this was OK, quite ok, lyrically , musically but , if we look how good as firts and second, this is week wary week

This is about as gothic as it gets
