Latest reviews

‘Solemn’ is a word with two rather distinct meanings: ‘solemn’, as in grand, ceremonial and majestic; and ‘solemn’, as in sombre, pensive or dour. The regal figure depicted on Solemn’s cover art indicates that In Vain may be intending to evoke the former meaning, and the music contained within Solemn very much supports this.

Following up a magnum opus like Ænigma is absolutely no easy task, and it took In Vain five years to come up with a fourth album. A make-it-or-break-it moment. How did they fare?
Review by RaduP ››
True to its name the latest release from Norway's In Vain has puzzling layers for you to consider. At its surface it might give the impression that it is simplistic in its richly melodic approach, as it carries the listener along with ease. Yet there is something which lies beneath which speaks of ambitious scope. A strong progressive undercurrent is at work which keeps Ænigma's accessibility afloat.
