Guest review by

There are some albums that deserve a warning sticker, absolutely bad ones and those likely to throw your rage out. Leave the last statement to the pioneering belligerence of US doom metal thunder "Solitude Aeturnus." After signing a world wide deal with the mighty German Massacre Records, in December 1997 they recorded what was to become their masterpiece: "Adagio." Now they've released their 2006 "Alone" album to set the speakers on fire, pummel souls into doom submission and push pounding hell metal, leaving behind them the disastrous first mix of the two demos. "Alone" is about to push their profile to a whole new sound, though not a hell of lot has changed in fact; it's still ultra heavy, slow and with melody, but just much more focused and diverse than previous efforts.

Rating: 8 I think it's safe to say that the last half or so of Scent of Death has the best clean vocal performance of recorded musical history. Oh, and Blessed be the Dead is probably the second.
