|Beautiful Nordic fjords and gorgeous landscapes are the first things that come to mind when listening to perhaps one of the best atmospheric doom albums of all time. Long span guitar solo's and one of the best female vocalists ever to grace as frontwoman of a metal band, K. Rueslåtten, make this short mCD to a wonderful epic experience.|
Not only does the music remind one of the beautiful nature of their native Norway, but the first track is also in Norwegian. The other 3 tracks have well written English lyrics about loss of love (the title track) or loss of hope ('Silently I surrender').
Althrough sometimes unjustly compared to other bands with female vocalists (they were one of the first) it is actually hard to compare The 3rd and the Mortal with any other band. Their sound is unlike most other doom bands, more atmospheric and dreamy but with NO connection what so ever to gothic music; highly guitar based music.
