Black Lotus/ sons of saturn - pretty excellent epic doom akin to Grand Magus, but doomier.

Find it absolutely bland. Only standing out is the first song, but then, even that "dark, dark, dark" gimmick is a tad too easy.

If I had given it a more careful listen, surely it'd have landed in my top ten of last year. It's truly excellent.

The more I hear it the more I like it, but it's trying to hard to be more than it is. All the heaviness has been removed for atmosphere. I recall reading that StS formed out of a desire to make heavy, goth free, doom/death metal and they did on their first 3-4 albums. Since then they've put lots of black and goth into their sound. I'm all for reinventing your sound but they've wandered off the map.

Good stuff. It demands more spin to unfold all its value, not an obvious immediate must-buy.. But maybe this is a good thing!

To me, they've always had the gothic element... maybe it was less pronounced in the first 3 albums... regarding "When a shadow", true, it sounds a bit too forced, but you need to remember what it's based on... still, I like it a lot.

STS never sound totally bad or annoying and I can get some enjoyment out of this new output, but it's rather unremarkable anyhow.

Which is not the case of Antimatter/ black market enlightment that I'm listening to right now.

I do and it's very tragic but isn't that what Hallatar was for? The "forced" statement was in regards to them trying to reinvent the wheel. They had an established sound and they've consciously moved away from it needlessly.
