Post Re: what is your opinion about "Tears Laid in Earth " album.

It is a true classic indeed, and one of my all-time favourites across all genres. It's very unique, too: there really isn't anything quite like it. The later works by The 3rd and the Mortal are similarly unique, but very different, of course. I love all of their releases, but the debut full-length remains my favourite.

An album that is often compared to early 'Mortal is "De Glemte Tider" by Skumring, but in all truth, it's very plain by comparison, and far less experimental. Still worth a listen, though - the atmosphere is great! To a lesser extent, "The Secret Kingdom" by Avrigus bears some similarities, too. Other than that, at best there are some bands in Metal that are somewhat similar in terms of atmosphere, but not stylistically (the first Agalloch album could be an example). Outside of Metal, you might want to check out White Willow, particularly the albums "Ex Tenebris", "Sacrament" and "Terminal Twilight".

Be sure to check out Kari Rueslåtten's solo albums if you haven't already. There's a very good version of "Why So Lonely" on "Time to Tell"...

One album that is severly overlooked and very similar to the latest works of the 3rd and the Mortal is The Soundbyte:
Spoiler: show


and then, would In the Woods' Omnio be poignant enough?
Spoiler: show


Green Carnation's Journey to the end of the Night has always had quite an effect on me too:
Spoiler: show


And Manes' Vilosophe, as maybe the most emotional Metal album I know of:
Spoiler: show

Hi BAPHOMET
I know "in the woods" albums
i see much parallels & similarities between
Tears Laid (doom + norfolk)
Heart Ages (black + norfolk)
Both bands change course soon
They left 2 exquisite albums of autumnal music
Experimental era is interesting though
I will check out Green Carnation,Manes & Soundbyte!
I love/like experimental music as well
You know Drudkh albums?
i recommend their discography
i like music that evocation of nature!
A greeting

'Sorrow' and 'Tears Laid in Earth' are the best things the 3rd and the Mortal did. Kari's voice was so incredible, it's hard not to fall in love with.

Post Re: what is your opinion about "Tears Laid in Earth " album.

Brilliant album, easily one of my favorites and one of my musical inspirations. It’s one of few albums I would consider to be the purest form of Atmospheric/Melodic Doom Metal, and I’ve actively looked for albums I thought sounded similar to it. There has been this boom of female fronted atmospheric/melodic doom bands lately who seemed to have been influenced by the album as well, so there is quite a bit, both old and new, to recommend.

Elbereth -…and Other Reasons (Melodic Doom Metal)
As Divine Grace - Lumo (Gothic/Doom Metal)
Flowing Tears & Withered Flowers - Joy Parade (Atmospheric Gothic/Doom Metal)
Atrox - Mesmerised (Melodic Doom/Death Metal) (the male vocals SUCK, but the rest is good)
Madder Mortem - Mercury (Progressive/Gothic/Doom Metal)
Clair de Lune Morte - Bleeds the Darkest One (Atmospheric Gothic/Doom Metal)
Skumring - De Glemte Tider (Funeral Doom/Folk Metal)
Semper Dolens - Eeuwige Rouw (Melodic Doom Metal)
It Will Come - 47 / Bound (Melodic Doom Metal)
Let it Flow - The Momentary Touches to the Depths (Gothic/Doom Metal)
Akelei - De zwaarte van het doorstane (Melodic Doom Metal)
Lethian Dreams - Red Silence Lodge (Atmospheric Doom Metal)
Mourning Sun - Último exhalario (Atmospheric Doom Metal)
Trees of Eternity - Hour of the Nightingale (Atmospheric Doom Metal)

NeoFolk, not norfolk, I guess...

Ah yes, how could I forget about that one? Great album. I wouldn't consider most of the other suggestions to be that close in sound, but it seems like I was just being too restrictive with my own recommendations. Most of the above-mentioned albums fit by extension, no doubt.

To TheUnginged:

Its not exactly equal but Transcendence (BAND )
have points in common with albums like:
"Tears Earth 1994"
"MandylioN 1995"
"Nighttime Birds 1997"

Transcendence = 2nd album = Labyrinth 1999 = i dont find

...By the way...

Parallels gothic neoclassical bands are necessary mention:
Elend, Die Verbannten Kinder Evas,...

Certainly
"d.mimosa mention Skumring"
Cecilie Langlie sing in OMIT band also
OMIT (Nor_band) recover torch for nostalgic ....

My reasons for choosing those albums is that I find significant similarities in style of riffage, guitar melodies, vocals, and/or general atmosphere. Some of those recommendations are a bit further in influence than others, but I still find that they have tendencies to have moments in their music that sound almost exactly like early-3rd and the Mortal. Akelei, for instance, sound very similar in their guitar style. I find their performances with female vocalist, Cátia Uiterwijk Winkel-André Almeida, sound exactly like The 3rd and the Mortal/The Gathering.



As Divine Grace sounded perhaps a bit more like The 3rd during their Nightswan/Painting on Glass era, as their female vocalist sounded considerably similar to Ann-Mari Edvardsen. Guitar-wise, however, I find Lumo sounds pretty similar to Tears Laid in Earth.

However, you can't possibly convince me this song by Madder Mortem doesn't sound like something from Sorrow or Tears Laid in Earth.

Sometimes:
It's difficult to find albums
in particular style...
It's good that there's a forum for this genre
You discover me news bands & news albums
Some album knew other albums i dont knew
Thanks YOU (plural) :!:
I like Lisa Gerrard & Brendan Perry music
very much but "Tear Laid Earth" = Earthquake :shock:
"They break the mold = There are no words to describe
"Dark Night of the Soul" but this album is the closest
to Saint John of the Cross mystical experience

I will check out MENACE RUINE ( baphomet mention) as well
:angel:

I've got Supermature from As Divine Grace and while it's fun to listen too every now and again it's just alternative rock. Is Lumo worth checking out? I discovered Skumring and Omit via this thread too. Both rock but Skumring is much better. Also Flowing Tears seemed to be Goth metal with hints of doom. Were the older albums better?

'Lumo' is like a mix of gothic rock with atmospheric doom, kind of like The Gathering but a bit slower.

As for Flowing Tears, they serve as a pretty straight-up example of gothic metal, but the two albums when they went as Flowing Tears & Withered Flowers are more or less atmospheric doom. The first album 'Swansongs' is pretty shitty sounding doom that sounds like Saturnus or Anathema with really weak male vocals. 'Joy Parade' was their first album with female vocals. The metal sections are really emotional gothic/doom with a depressed atmosphere, and there are a lot of acoustic and ambient sections in the mix as well. I would definitely say 'Joy Parade' has some ties to The 3rd and the Mortal.
