The Sins of Thy Beloved : Lake of Sorrow

Band name: The Sins of Thy Beloved

There is a popular story whose content is as follows: once there was an army of napoleon passing a bridge. When they began to get through this bridge, the commander ordered his army to march through it. But, to everyone¡¯s surprise, when they reached the middle of this bridge, it broke down suddenly. Now, the physical textbook tells us, that is because the frequency of their steps was resonant with the bridge¡¯s own oscillating frequency, so the bridge¡¯s oscillation became stronger and stronger, and finally cause itself to break down. This story does not mean to tell us how stupid the

The Sins of Thy Beloved :  Perpetual Desolation

Band name: The Sins of Thy Beloved

People have very mixed feeling about these guys (Not just here, but everywhere.) I own this CD and have listened several times, and though I do love it, I am prepared to critically dissect it. Getting to the bad stuff first... First off, the lyrics are horrible. One of the biggest reasons is poor English i.e. "with a torn in my heart" "never to talk and never to walk no more." Also, they like to over use words "In thine dark mournful eyes, I see captivity in thy eyes, obscurity enswathes this temptress the moonlight shines in ye eyes." The lyrics are just downright cheesy in spots too. The

Serenity in Murder : The Highest of Dystopia , brief review


Serenity in Murder :  The Highest of Dystopia

Band name: Serenity in Murder

Serenity in Murder are a Japanese sextet that play a particularly epic brand of symphonic melodic death metal. A simple listen to “Await Me Your Oath” will give you a pretty strong impression of what to expect from this album. Between the lush, often folky keyboards and stellar riffing, I was certainly intrigued enough to add this album to my listening queue. Let me assure you that I was not left disappointed even a little. The keyboards often supply a melodramatic atmosphere on par with Equilibrium: over the top, but endearing rather than disheartening. Freddy is no one-trick pony. This

Nonexistence : Nihil , brief review


Nonexistence : Nihil

Band name: Nonexistence

Well, even after a few listens, this little baby had me well and truly fucked when trying to decide on the genre, forcing me to opt for the big, fat, comfortable 'unclassifiable' option. Hailing from Austria, Philip Santoll is the brains behind Nonexistence, and if his influences are anything like the music he plays here, he's got a cubic light year of albums from multiple metal genres to pick through every time head heads to stick on an album. Somehow, and rather impressively I might add, 'Nihil' manages to mix the eclectic verve of Arcturus and Solefald without getting too 'out there',

Fear of Eternity : Spirit of Sorrow , brief review


Fear of Eternity :  Spirit of Sorrow

Band name: Fear of Eternity

“Spirit of Sorrow” is the second Fear of Eternity album re-released through Moribund Records. The one-man, black metal group from Italy continues on the path of sorrow-laced ambience presented on “Toward the Castle.” The band’s identity has not changed; however, the production has knocked off the cryptic cobwebs of its predecessor. With a cleaner production, the keyboard passages create lush soundscapes, allowing the listener to further fall into “singers” fantastic, sonic realms. Andrea Tilenni uses keyboards as the foundation for his music. The keyboards create the rhythm, tone, and pace,

Raventale : Bringer of Heartsore , brief review


Raventale :  Bringer of Heartsore

Band name: Raventale

Just as one thinks that the extreme metal scene has reached a point beyond saturation and there is no way that new releases can possibly beat those "old-school" and "classic" releases (especially with the recent old-school revival movement), bands like Raventale pop out to prove this belief wrong. Ukraine's Raventale has been around since 2005, with a steady stream of releases. Bringer of Heartsore marks the band's fifth release in six years. BadMoonMan Music, the label of the band, touts this release as one of the most "sophisticated, sensual and mature" work of the band, and it is easy to

Raventale : Transcendence , brief review


Raventale : Transcendence

Band name: Raventale

I have been following this band in the past years, and I chose to review this album in particular as it appears to me as one of the, if not the strongest album they released so far. Being familiar with the band's previous efforts, the first thing one would notice on this album is the change in production quality. While the previous albums have been rather clean sounding (again, think Brave Murder Day or Inside the Fall here), this one is very rough in comparison. The guitars are still thick, but with a sharp, rough edge to them. While this could have been a bad idea, here it turns out quite

Fear of Eternity : Toward the Castle , brief review


Fear of Eternity : Toward the Castle

Band name: Fear of Eternity

The general feel to "Toward The Castle" is rather neutral. The keyboards, programmed to sound like church bells, chimes, cellos, string ensembles, are jangly and often similar to the "gothic fantasy" side of video game background music composition. A layer of frost is added with guitars and vocals, but the listener's attention is almost always on the keyboard leads, which are in fact not so much "lead" as "more atmosphere." There are only two exceptions to this general rule. First is the first full song, "Flying Over The Mountains," which starts with an upbeat bass/drum machine/keyboard

Fear of Eternity : Light of the Night , brief review


Fear of Eternity :  Light of the Night

Band name: Fear of Eternity

First things first: The opener I Walk Alone starts with a heavy usage of synthesizer sounds, which clearly states that they will keep the upper hand on the record, as melodies and most of the ambient sounds are filled with those sounds. The guitars, when they actually could be noticed, are playing the second fiddle and are just playing some rhythm riffs. The vocals are growled quite low and are combined with some effects as reverb and are therefore contrasting the high-pitched melodies. The second song seems to start after a short break, as you can hear guitars playing a little melody, but

Dead Summer Society : Visions from a Thousand Lives , brief review


Dead Summer Society : Visions from a Thousand Lives

Band name: Dead Summer Society

Dead Summer Society is a gothic/doom metal project from Italy. The man behind the music is How like a winter’s guitarist Mist who performs all of the instruments on the debut full length, Visions From a Thousand Lives. The album is a follow up to the instrumental demo Heart of the autumnsphere which was released in 2010. Musically Visions From a Thousand Lives is a gothic/doom album with dark, atmospheric elements. It would appeal to fans of My Dying Bride, Katatonia, Tiamat and Lacrimas Profundere. In the press kit Dead Summer Society’s music is described as “a multiform soundscape permeated
