It is actually a disgrace that it took me this long to finish this review. All in all, it has, somehow, taken me about five whole months. Why, you might ask? Well, first of all, it seems that I happen to be one of the worse procrastinators in the world of reviewing. Second of all, some albums are apparently hard to review and find the right words for, be it bad or good or average. Burden Of Grief is such an album. Not that it is bad or average, hell no, it is a very good album. Why else would we as Metal Storm staff nominate it in both the 'Best Doom Metal Albums' and 'Best Debut Albums' categories for the Metal Storm Awards 2009?

Rating: 7 An interesting album. This is some pretty "true" doom as it should. Not really suited for listening while driving your car (or doing anything fast paced for that matter), but instead slowly walking through a place of death and decay (such as end of winter, rainy weather, the school of your choice where you can't stand your fellow retch's, etc), just observing and "being" in that place.

I could't agree more

Rating: 8 Wow... im impressed. it took me a while to realize how good this band is. at first i was like "ahh, okay, another half-descent doom band..." but now i completely changed my mind. and ill see if i can change the rating too m/

Rating: 8 Definitely a great album. This is indeed a grower, since I didn't like it a lot the first time I listened to it.

Some of the lyrics of the first song are laughable though.
