|In my review of their 'Demo 2000' I complained about it being rather short. So the band sent me a lengthier demo originally recorded with the intention of introducing the then new drummer. The band expressed their unhappiness with the end result, but I would disagree.|
This demo offers six groovy and epic traditional doom tracks that once more make me look forward to one day a full album gets released by these guys. This demo has more of an epic feel about it then 'Demo 2000' and at times I think that vocalist Vesa would not have been misplaced as the vocalist of an 80ties NWOBHM band.
However their 'Sabbathisch track 'Sweet Oblivion' quickly reminds us all where these guys are coming from and that we are definitely dealing with a doom act. The down-tuned guitars, the sluggish rhythms and the epic wailing vocals, all the things that make traditional doom sound great can be found here. All that is left for me to say is: Forwards to a record deal and full-length album!
