Staff review by

Three years after the release of their elegiac and magnificent "Omnium Obmutum" Estatic Fear returned with another album filled with intense emotions and inspiration. The name of it "A Sombre Dance" and for one more time this Austrian act managed to give a title fitting with the atmosphere of the compositions in the most ideal way. Indeed the album is "a sombre dance" while you lose yourself dancing, manoeuvring in the esotericism of melancholy and visions that come forth from tales of medieval sorrow and grief.

She was only a guest vocalist in this album. Ex-female vocals of Draconian, Lisa Johansson, used to have a very similar voice, her voice is epic

Rating: 8 It's nice but a bit boring. I don't think that is has deserved a place among the Top 200 of all time.
