Well, here, I differ largely. I can't stand it. The guitar sounds like very bland plastic bagpipes and the riffs are never interesting, never assertive, too shy and repetitive in their up-and-down structure. Drumming and Growls are ok. But it's a vapid too-mellow effort, imo.

I don't mind it, but it's not really funeral doom... it's a mix... the review is confusing. Also, it sounds a lot like an Edenian release because the guy is also the mastermind behind Edenian... it's basicaly Edenian with different singers. Again, there is no mention of it.

That being said, I am happy to hear that singer from Autumnia. Too bad the overall songwriting isn't on par with this excellent band's.
I didn't notice the singing parts were hold by different guys! (the review doesn't make it really clear either...)

From bandcamp...

The second full-length album of the Ukrainian atmospheric doom death metal band demonstrates the rapid artistic development of the man behind the name Sorrowful Land, Max Molodtsov. Each composition has its own unique sound and mood enhanced by appearance of guest vocalists, such as Kaivan Saraei (A Dream Of Poe), Daniel Neagoe (Clouds, Eye Of Solitude, Shape Of Despair), Evander Sinque (Who Dies In Siberian Slush , Decay Of Reality, Forbidden Shape), Vladislav Shahin (Mournful Gust, Autumnia), Daniel Arvidsson (Draconian, Mammoth Storm). Guest guitar solo in one of the tracks is performed by Vito Marchese (Novembers Doom, The Kahless Clone). This album will become a great gift for all doom death metal fans!

I enjoy this album, nothing groundbreaking but the compositions are good and the guitars are excellent at times.

I stopped listening immediately when I heard Kaivan Saraei's vocals....I can't stand his voice.....not a great way to open an album. To me at least :p
