The River : Different Ways To Be Haunted



More of the same, but even better: this description is perhaps the most appropriate one to describe the musical "evolution" of The River from their first to their second demo. All the ingredients of 'Oneiric Dirges in Mono' are still present, but much better executed: the guitars are as heavy, but much clearer; the voice sounds more confident and soulful and the drums strong and powerful. Even the occasional acoustic interludes are very well integrated and form an ideal calm before the storm.

The hypnotic, mesmerizing wall of guitar sound is very addictive and as a doom fan, you find yourself returning very often to this strong demo. The River prove with this second effort that together with Cambian Dawn and Centurions Ghost they can be considered among the finest specimens of the New Wave of British Doom Metal.
