28.12.2011 Like walking through a home just as its owners are silently moving out, with different cities as their destinations, To Cast A Shadow finds a way to express warmth and desire within a lonely, gloomy atmosphere of doom-drenched gothic metal. Deliberate percussion, heavy bass and guitar, with a pulsing drama and internal struggle lyrically, they mostly keep it mid-tempo to slow, but with the occasional outburst that adds an urgency to the overall arrangements within. Distraught male growls & murky female vocals that yearn for an end to interpersonal distances, In Memory Of is a swansong to what two people once were, and the reality of what is left behind.

Second that!

A great album indeed which took a few spins before I realized how good it actually is. Their debut album was also a pleasant listen although somewhat uneven. In Memory Of feels more complete with a more distinct atmosphere and a better vocalist.

Hi! Thought I should enlighten you on this subject. First of all, thank you for your comments The first "scream" on the song Tormented was performed by a friend of the band called Hans Kristian Norgaard. He also does the final scream on the song "In memory of" . The rest of the male vocals on the album (growling on "My misery", and some clean vocals on "The Answer" and" Nightfall" were performed by myself) Our bassplayer Stian also had some growling voice on the song "When you leave the room".

Glad you like the album
