Ghost Warriors
    Conceptually intriguing, but not quite backed up by a similar musical variety, Godes Yrre's sophomore makes some mechanized progress.
 cdimgVol 2: You Dared Challenge The Great Old Ones. You Will Fall Into The Abyss
    Lovecraftian Funeral Doom with an Italian twist and flair: Y'ha-Nthlei offer a powerful sophomore.

    This Heavy/Doom Metal debut from Sweden's Bell has some moments but lacks overall conviction.
 cdimgCl˘ture (EP)

    This re-release of Sorrowful God's mid-'90s Russian Gothic Doom is rather a hit or miss affair.
 cdimgMemories Engraved In Stone
    Texan Funeral Doom band In Oblivion present an interesting, if slightly flawed, debut.
cdimgGale (EP)
    Canada's Sundecay hit the spot with their sophomore EP - do yourself a favour and order it up while you still can...
 cdimgFollowers Of The Apocalypse
    Creative, but vastly overindulgent in length, Omination's huge debut has a potential for greatness.
