Staff review by
Marcel Hubregtse
Probably THE most anticipated extreme doom release of 2007 is finally upon us. And that after only a two-year wait. So Evoken have speeded up their song-writing pace, but thank God they didn't speed up the music itself.

Putting the cd into the player with trembling hands and sweaty palms I press the play button and in typical Evoken fashion "suddenly the horizon darkens, swallowing every single ray of light that tries to penetrate the gloomy clouds" © DerRozzengarten 2005. And I am instantly being enveloped by the majestic treacly riffs which suck me into a void while caressing me.

Evoken invented a new genre of doom metal - soul-crushing doom...

Definitely prefered Quietus and Antithesis of Light over this. Still a great album for sure
Giving my ears a rest from music.

This may not be their best album, but Suffer A Martyr's Trial (Procession At Dusk) is transcending.
