Still a very good album, some memorable tracks on it. My only complaint is that not all of the songs are of the same caliber, but the good ones are really fantastic.

Ha, I remember this! I have a physical copy of this album... somewhere.

Hmm, I've had a single MP3 of theirs, namely of this album's title track, on my HD for years, but never quite got into it. The review made me want to take a closer listen to their material, though, so I've bookmarked their Bandcamp now... We'll see.

Edit: Listening to "Scars" right now, fantastic song! Very untypical for a Doom band, too.

yep, they are not your typical doom band... some songs are doomy, some song are poppy, some other are, erm, not particularly impressive... :D mixed bag...

The album was convincing enough for me to think about a purchase... Right now I'm listening to "Through the Eyes of Regret", the previous album, and I like it even more. Very beautiful! But this one seems to be impossible to find (though I haven't looked very hard yet).

I checked out current prices when doing the review/preparing the interview and they're pricy to track down! The first EP "Odyssey Into Darkness" is quite readily available and cheap on eBay, but there were hardly any copies of the two full-length albums and those were going for anything between £20 and £50...

I ordered the first album from discogs yesterday in "near mint" condition for € 12,00 including shipping. :) I've also found the second one for € 12,50 (I think it was) incl. shipping on eBay, but haven't ordered it yet. Looking hard seems to pay off here.
