My Shameful : The Return To Nothing

I begin by stating that I'm a fan of the band, so I ask of you to forgive me if I'm a little bit more harsh with my critique (it is always the bands we like we want more from).

The band is one of the best in the funeral scene and this album proves it. They studied the teachings of the bands that shaped doom/death in the past ten years and they start to shape a much more personal sound making all those who enjoyed their previous works and especially that unbelievable debut happy. The band is far from being one of the many in the MDB. chariot and describing them as that shows at least ignorance, both in terms of music and lyrics. My Shameful is much darker and heavier, and they don't believe in the romantic side of dying (if there is any). The atmosphere of the album is based on the heavy and thick riffs, and is full of hate and torment vocals which can be described as suffocating. Imagine you are buried alive and you die slowly without oxygen; at the beginning you try to escape, and when you fail, you surrender hopelessly to your fate.

Those who know the band don't need me to say that this album is recommended to anyone who has a serious doom/death collection, but be prepared for an extreme kind of music that is dangerously addictive. If you want to get a taste of the band you can watch their video for 'This Same Grey Light' at YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZnHk7Ff-cGk
