I have a strong feeling this'll become one of the most appreciated doom metal releases this year. It's wonderfully melancholic, the songwriting is great, and vocals are magnificent.

I'm not very impressed with this one. I find it not very innovative or at least not very original. Don't get me wrong the vocals are excellent and the music itself is very appreciable but in my opinion overall it's a good album that doesn't manage to stand out from other albums of the genre. I'm not totally sold on this album.

The last track is just plain beautiful! The opening of the 3rd track immediately drew me in!! Amazing stuff.

Love it! Remind me of "Discouraged ones" from Katatonia.

Their sophomore release, this is essentially the spiritual sucessor of Rapture, with some very noteworthy Finnish musicians in their roster. This is an excellent extraction of the essence of Finnish melodic death/doom.

These are my opinions. You're welcome to discard them.

This band is a perfect mix of 90s Katatonia, My dying Bride , Paradise Lost and Anathema. I love their sound, the production and the overall atmosphere of the record . However, the songs sometimes lack that catchy vocal melody or that sophistication that separates bands like Katatonia from the rest . Nevertheless, this is one of my favourites of this year and I have high hopes that the next album is going to be a masterpiece.
