Staff review by
Throes Of Dawn have been around for quite some time, I remember having listened to them from a friend about 6-7 years ago, to be more precise it was Binding Of The Spirit that I listened to, powerful and atmospheric as far as I recall. Quicksilver Clouds followed, having not listened to it though, but I suppose it moves in the same vein as its predecessor. A few years of silence and hop! The Great Fleet Of Echoes makes its appearance with Throes Of Dawn making their sound lighter and putting a greater effort on the atmospheric term.

The whole album gives the feeling that it's from a movie soundtrack (in a good way)

Well, so far this is still my favourite 2010 album. So peaceful, soothing, dreamy and relaxing...

Brilliant album!!! I don't care, if they have been influenced by so many other bands - they have been influenced by the best! It doesn't happen often with me, but I have been listening to this album for 3 days straight - from dusk till dawn and still it doesn't start to bore me! It has everything I want and love in metal - greath atmosphere, beautiful and catchy melodies, ocassional growling, and .... and this elusive feeling that I am listening to something out of this world, something that Tiamat, Anathema, Madrigal, Paradise Lost and others started, but, alas, doesn't seem to do anymore.

Maybe I'm overrating this album, but I love it and I don't vote 10 very often, but ..... but this time I am hooked on this.

Great job, guys!

I must give a more careful listen to their previous albums, but after the first listens, they didn't impress me so much as this masterpiece.

A true hidden gem, I will dare to say!

Some of the songs make me think of a heavier version of Keldian.
"Another day, another Doug."
"I'll fight you on one condition. That you lower your nipples."
" 'Tis a lie! Thy backside is whole and ungobbled, thou ungrateful whelp!"
