Shape of Despair : Written in My Scars , brief review


Shape of Despair :  Written in My Scars

Band name: Shape of Despair

This ep is something that I have been awaiting for quite sometime, as it was preceded by almost 2 years of silence from one of my favorite (if not, absolute favorite) doom metal bands. Shape of Despair, to me, is a band that transcends the genres of doom, doom death, funeral doom, and atmospheric doom. They are incredibly accessible for a member of the funeral doom genre, yet that in no way sells them short, as they compose some of the most beautiful sonic tapestries of longing, remorse, and crushing depression. If one is unfamiliar with this band, I could honestly see this ep as a good

Shape of Despair :  Angels of Distress

Band name: Shape of Despair

If I could translate my saddest moments into audio, the resulting misery would be coded as Shape Of Despair’s second album, and their magnum opus, Angels Of Distress. This is the best funeral doom metal album I’ve heard so far. I don’t even fully understand why I like it so much. I think it might have something to do with the whole being greater than the sum of its parts: Standing alone, the female vocals wouldn’t sound as atmospheric as they do, but behind the droning drums, drawn-out guitars, and flowing synths, they sound perfect. And this goes for every other aspect of the album, where

Shape of Despair :  Shades of...

Band name: Shape of Despair

Safe to say, this is my favorite release out of the entire funeral doom genre. Such power and emotion conveyed throughout the duration of the disc is unmatched in the metal world. Slow, plodding riffs with REAL instruments (along with keyboard arrangements) dominate this album. Songs such as opener "...In the Mist" have waltzy feels with 6/8 rhythms, though I don't believe anyone will be waltzing to this. The male vocals on the album are very powerful, a more voiced version of fellow countrymen Skepticism with a slight nasal quality, shared with very gentle, soaring female vocals. The

Erg Noor : Revelation , brief review


Erg Noor : Revelation

Band name: Erg Noor

Before I start writing this review I want you to ask yourself if you like epic and beautiful guitar work. If you do then go here: http://www.ergnoor.de - This demo and Erg Noor's second one are both available there for free download. If you are into beautiful music then it's almost guaranteed that you'll like this. The name Erg Noor is apparently Dutch for "terribly norwegian". I don't think the name fits the band very well as it's neither terrible nor has it any musical associations with scandinavian culture. [edit by author: It turns out that the name actually refers to a person from the

Erg Noor : Voices Of Earth , brief review


Erg Noor : Voices Of Earth

Band name: Erg Noor

The name of this demo seems to have a far more interesting meaning than most release titles. At least it reminds me of two of history's most important 12"s. They are called 'The Golden Records'. The reason for their importance is the fact that they were attached as time capsules to the spacecrafts Voyager 1 and Voyager 2, who have recently passed Pluto and have left our solar system. 'The Golden Records' are meant as a communication to extraterrestrials about life here on Earth. More about this here. The reason that 'Voices Of Earth' reminds me of 'The Golden Records' is the fact that both

Thormesis : Von Leere und Tod , brief review


Thormesis : Von Leere und Tod

Band name: Thormesis

Thormesis is a German band that plays a very emotional form of black and pagan metal. The riffs but also the bass guitar sound dark and heavy. The fast drum passages are completely insane but also technically intriguing without sounding to progressive and make listeners go crazy. The band doesn't forget to include atmospheric and calm passages in their bleak and thundering madness. These moments are short, efficient and very important as they give you a short break from the blizzering darkness. Apart of the harmonious introduction and the Grabfeld cover, the songs are all really long and

Mountain God : Forest Of The Lost , brief review


Mountain God : Forest Of The Lost

Band name: Mountain God

The last time we heard from New York's Mountain God was the 5-track 2013 EP 'Experimentation On The Unwilling', establishing their penchant for mixing up a fierce and raw concoction of Doom drawn largely from Sludge, Stoner and '70s Psychedelic influences. It gathered some deserved praise for layering surprising depths of complexity into a rough, angrily streetwise palette that stayed unwaveringly true to the dark side. So here we are in 2015, looking at the follow-up, 'Forest Of The Lost', still with the very much independent Archaic Revival Records, still on cassette, but with an eye on

Lapis Lazuli : Last Hour , brief review


Lapis Lazuli :  Last Hour

Band name: Lapis Lazuli

Lapis Lazuli is a Swedish metal band from Hammerdal. This guys’ first output was released back in 2006, figuring 5 tacks, and untitled Last Hour. This demo is almost 38 min of play, combining power and progressive metal, in addition to classical and orchestral elements. In spite of the fact that this was self released, I would say these guys did a great job concerning production, and I mean this was well produced. The instruments here are easy to distinguish, and the sound is so clean and tidy. On the songwriting side, as I said in my introduction, this band uses wide different musical

Lapis Lazuli :  A Loss Made Forever

Band name: Lapis Lazuli

My relationship with symphonic metal has always been pretty straight forward, it’s either I hate the release so much that I disregard the band forever or I love the record and I keep the band on my playlist for months on end. Hundreds of bands have been disregarded over the years but a couple have actually stayed to whisper sweet nothings in my ear as I dream of mystical landscapes and wonder why I wasn’t blessed with the pleasure of being a wizard as a small child. Sweden’s own Lapis Lazuli is one of the few bands that deserve credit for me enjoying a small percentage of symphonic metal. It

Blackthorn : Gossamer Witchcraft , brief review


Blackthorn : Gossamer Witchcraft

Band name: Blackthorn

There's an idea that 'gothic metal' means the same thing as 'female-fronted wannabe metal'. That seems to be a common train of thought among metalheads, and although it is applicable to some bands (mostly falling into the symphonic gothic category), Blackthorn isn't one of them. Alright, they have got a female vocalist, but she does screams as well as cleans. Alright, they have a keyboard who is largely present, but the riffs from the guitars are pretty strong and do a lot to guarantee that this can be seen as a legitimate metal band. First things first, I like to bring up the band Serpent &
