Haste makes waste – which could be the motto for this CD as well as for its review. Pain Confessor from Finnish Hämeenlinna are back after a 4-year-hiatus, with a powerful album that almost failed to capture our attention... And this would have been an unforgivable mistake because Incarcerated is a great album that naturally made it to Inferno Magazine´s Top 10 in the end of 2012.

The opener Oceans of Sickness definitely gives you the first goosebums with those massive epic Black Metal-ish soundscapes and alternating growl and clean vocals... this cool mix of melodies and brutal sounds is this album´s trademark – as if Children Of Bodom, Dimmu Borgir and Kiuas made songs together. Although later the pretty brutal BM sound characterizes many tracks, I´d still put the band into the Gothenburg genre. Blood Eagle and Grief (which is one of the highlights) offer more relaxed grooves, occasionally I hear Doom - or Powermetal elements (Gravel), and some acoustic parts give you some time to catch your breath. Grim River is another highlight – gooseflesh! - where everything seems done right, the brutal drumming and riffing, those majestic melodies. Tarnished Halo has a pretty epic chorus, too, but then again it´s a Thrash-Black-Power Metal bastard named Vitriol that kicks you back into reality.

Well, I liked the band even back then in 2006 when I saw them at Finnish Metal Expo, and with this album they should be able to find a wider fan basis outside their home country. This CD is definitely put into my player more often, and I´m looking forward to seeing them live (e.g. mit HEAVEN SHALL BURN and Artificial Heart, 20.3.2013, THE CIRCUS, HELSINKI)
