I like this album quite a lot, my only problem is the same as with the splits - the debut EP simply promised more from this band...

Oh, I didn't realise there was a new A.T. out. I'll have to give it a listen...

Yeah, I feel this band has given all they can and it's not much in my book. They need to take more time maybe. Right now, it's not only redundant against what they already released, but also absolutely unremarkable (which doesn't mean that's it's bad, just mediocre in the plain sense of the word).

The album as a whole is far to be as interesting as the first one was. I fail to hear anything new and there're no parts that I found really gripping... It's a 6 for me.

I like it and especially since Kostas in in there one track, I want to say track 2 or three reminded me BIG TIME of Pantheist from it's intro. Still, i need to check out some of the other releases (bandcamp hopefully has them so I can stream them first to see if I like them enough to buy them. Still, nice atmosphere.

They've put out a new album, still a bit patchy, but interesting, they don't seem to have the gear to take things up a notch though; they remind me of stuff like Lapsus Dei or Revelations of Rain: they got it all right, but it lacks the extra sparkle (and the female backsinger is weak :( ).

Post Re: Aphonic Threnody - "When Death Comes"

Thanks for the heads-up, will give it a try... They used to be very promising, and their split CDs were particularly great, but 'When Death Comes' bored the crap out of me. I ended up selling it.

Edit: the new songs don't sound too bad. It's nice that they've mellowed down the production somewhat; I've always felt their heavy-as-a-brick approach to sound was a bit over the top and lacking subtlety. The female vocals are a strange combination with the rest, but I quite like them, personally. It's the singer from Alunah, one of the very few Stoner Doom bands I can actually tolerate...

I like the direction on this new track, but not the overall sound. Doesn't sound as 'heavy' as on previous recordings.
