What a great album! I gave this band a chance because someone once said they are similar to Katatonia (which I like a lot). I'm impressed, their music is beautiful and expressive.

Actually their best disc...! Similiar sound to later period bands like Swallow The Sun, Novembers Doom and Slumber for which they became known for.
Nice atmosphere, structured songs, catchy but still with quality guitar riffs.

One of the early Katatonia's Brave Murder Day era worshippers. Great album.
Crackhead Megadeth reigns supreme.

'This Is Where I Am' is such a great song. Definitely the standout of the album IMO.

Rapture was a pleasant surprise when I first discovered this doom-metal masterpiece. This one is so special to me because this release is one of the most influential albums to my journey to the metal world. All the songs are fully packed with remorse, despair, and sorrow for suicidal tendencies. Highly recommended for fans who have a bittersweet musical taste with the mixture of lethal doses of sombre melody and the extreme features of death metal.
