|Less than 1 year after their previous release 'Rapture', the Finnish doomband Unholy sent their 4th effort towards the legions of depressive doomfreaks on this world. Whereas 'Rapture' was an album with a tad more aggressive feel to it, 'Gracefallen' is a bit slower and doomier. More effort and concentration have been put on the arrangements of the songs, and also the female vocal parts (sung by new band member Veera) are better than on their previous album.|
Unholy remains in their well known trancy, slow, melodic style, building up pure laments of sadness. With an average of 7 minutes per song, Unholy makes tracks with a length within the expectations of true doom-metal. Vocals are mixed male and female, also one instrumental song, called 'Haoma' is featured.
Overall this album sounds rough, even brutal at moments, but always slow and doomy. Guitar parts are often very hypnotic, putting up very trancy atmospheres. This album is a great approval of the band's cult doom status.
