Staff review by
D.T. Metal
What attracted me to Swallow The Sun in the first place? Hard to say, but it was definitely their take on combining elements of doom and melodic death metal and putting their own spin on the outcome. And while not originators of this not easily defined genre, Swallow The Sun stayed somewhat true to their basic formula over the years.

I really dig Night Will Forgive Us. Always my favorite song from this album.

Very average album. The slower parts have a good atmosphere, the growling is not spectacular and the instruments are really average at best. I honestly believe that any album with growling and sad slow parts gets a high rating on metal storm unless it really sucks...

4 good tracks.

Cathedral Walls, Labyrinth of London, Of Death And Corruption and Night Will Forgive Us. The rest is pretty forgettable.
