Is she dead, wrapped in plastic? :D

This band is linked to a younger me, more hair, less beard, and just this makes me feel like giving them a chance.

It was recorded between 2011 and 2016... and you can tell. It has an old-fashioned feel to it, like the music is stuck in a different era. Still pleasant, but it reminds me of Anathema's Eternity period. An the singer should stop imitating the bloke from Paradise Lost...

Sounds awful then... :D Of all the vocalists to try and imitate....

Edit: The bits of pure Death/Doom are quite good. The rest not so much. It's a poor copy of the aforementioned...

This album is like your little deformed brother, you don't like to be seen with him around, but you still like him.

lol... it's got a weird charm... but I can't get passed the singer's impersonations of Hetfield and Holmes...

The guitars are very nice and enjoyable, as well as the grunts. But the clean vocals are quite annoying most of the time (only the slow, somber clean singing is ok) and since they are quite prevalent, i'll skip=)

p.s. an advice to the reviewer - if you split the longer paragraphs into smaller chunks, it becomes much more readable=)
