A rather good mix of Shape of Despair and Lethian Dreams; nothing to get up in the middle of the night for, but it does have some effect on me...

As a matter of fact, after 11 minutes of the enjoyable one track off this album I listened to on YT, the quality took a big step back and I told to myself that the reviewer was quite right that is was very much perfectible, but, hey, this was the opening of SOD 1998 demo that comes after in the YT playlist! HAHA!

Thanks! Listening now. True that track first is a very poor composition, bland, emotion-less... The downside of working on one's own. Some are better judges of themselves than others...

I agree this is a pretty generic SOD clone, but it's very enjoyable and pleasant.

Yes, that demo is quite poor, I got the official version that was released a year or two ago, hoping that in proper format it would be listenable, but unfortunately I can see no reason why anybody would listen to it instead of Shades of...

I was reading this thread from the bottom and thought you were all talking about Stormtroopers of Death.......

Ha! I read that comment and thought it sounded nothing like them either...I mean, you see SOD, you think Stormtroopers of Death right...? :D

This is on Spotify if anyone cares, or doesn't want to go searching too far. Bandcamp people...BANDCAMP! . I'm enjoying it :O yeah I know, a Funeral Doom release....oh, my bad, it's on Loneraven's BC page....nice though despite the mid-nineties Anathema leanings, the minimalism reminds me of Max Richter in places...
