Saturnus had been a really important doom/death metal band in the 90s, having a distinctive sound once you had listened to them, but sadly fate seemed to have some other plans instead of letting them become great. They disbanded, but now they are back with a new and strong line-up that can do miracles on stage (you got my word for this!). "Veronika Decides To Die" is the title of their long-awaited third full-length album after a small but very promising tour that hopefully passed from Greece, Athens, and allow me to say that it is a really dynamic and deeply promising come back which places Saturnus back to the throne of withered roses and failed romance they had left behind.

How can you compare this vs oprth


I am talking simply about the atmosphere and melancholy which is what Opeth were trying to go for on Blackwater Park and stating that this is exactly how you create melancholy and atmosphere. Blackwater Park is an album I consider utter garbage so i tend to use it as a reference point to anything i listen to.

After struggling for quite some time as to which is my favourite Saturnus album -- since indeed they released quite some top quality material -- I guess I have come to a quite solid feeling that it is this album.
It is their only album that has only very rarely those moments where they are sort of losing me lingering out some over-long songs (here only present at Decending and maybe a little bit at All Alone for me).
Paradise follows closely as my second-favourite of their albums, with significantly more lingering.
Then comes Martyre and after quite some gap it is Saturn.
Will we have another Saturnus album one day?

Such beautifully constucted melodies, and such an array of quality instrumentation, from these masterful musicians of course the best doom metal album ever imho anyway

This is one of the first Gothic Metal albums I'd ever listened to (thanks to MS top 200 albums). I found the vocals to be quite strange, almost moan-like, and the music slow and drawn-out. It took me a bit of time to appreciate this style, but now I think this album is great! A beautiful and poetic collection of songs.

8.9/10 for me - 'I Long' and 'All Alone' are the standout songs. 'Pretend', 'Rain Wash Me' and 'Embraced by Darkness' are also all great. 'Murky Waters' is the weakest song on the album.

That's strange, this album got my attention only when this song came on. Probably need at least 3 more listens to appreciate it more.

I guess for me that is rather All Alone. But Murky Waters is probably second.
