Post Re: Rise Of Avernus - "Eigengrau"

I have always found it incredibly difficult to liten to Rise of Avernus. I don't like how a lot of gothic metal nowadays is painted as some sort of clean-cut sympho/melodeath sounding stuff, which this is to me. It sounds more like Septicflesh than actual gothic doom. It's just too clean cut and the growls are too prevalent.

I agree 100% with your description. But I still like it a lot, just for what it is.

They're great musicians and they make *good music*, but it just doesn't appeal to me for whatever reason. Maybe if there was a bit more female singing and more Doom in the riffs, I'd be more into it.

Yes both of those would be good additions. They had more female vox before, I miss them. And whilst they do have more doom riffs than similar bands, they are in a minority.
