Guest review by

What can anyone say about Sentenced? They have left their mark in the metal scene and it will stay there for generations to come. They are quite an underrated band, which should have a different level status. Even so, many people love them and they are very much missed, even almost 3 years after they left us, after their funeral.

  Re listened and now songs what stands out are
Noose, amazing song video don't work somehow, a bit heavy album , depressive, suicidal, anti love, longing for love
Another good songs are keep my grave open, awesome lyrics and my fab sun wont shine, ''her eyes, the birth of stars'' simply amazing , I envy Sami, he is such great lyricist, I wish I was able say as my words your eyes the birth of stars to girl I date , another kick ass song is reaper song ... a bit COBy
