On many occasions I have already praised this band, and I have to repeat myself here. Simply great music you should not miss, and if you havenīt heard anything of Swallow The Sun yet, just get this album. First, itīs perhaps a bit more Metal - even Black Metal, I would say - than Doom and perhaps a bit easier to access in comparison to previous works, second, itīs in all itīs epic opulence the essence what this Finnish band is about: great and catchy melancholic melodies, deeply touching, music that totally captivates you and you want to hear over and over again. Basically itīs only 1 track, 35 min long, in 3 parts, that will take you on a magic journey; singer Mikko shows that he does not only master clean vocals and growls, he added evil screeches (hence Black Metal), which suits the STS sound surprisingly well; additional female vocals are again provided by Leeni-Maria Hovila. Lyrics and cover artwork (Minja Revonkorpi) add to this "Gesamtkunstwerk" impression; then there is this 25 min "bonusmaterial" - the complete "Out of This Gloomy Light" demo - so nothing more to say: This CD is simply a MUST.
