Veni Domine : IIII - The Album Of Labour

Epic progressive doomsters Veni Domine return with a new album after the many difficulties they faced during the last years. However, it was well worth the waiting because the album meets for one more time the high standards of Veni Domine.

The typical melodic, majestic, epic doom metal with some progressive touches of those Americans can once again be found in the new album. All the songs are full of melodic themes. Slower and mid tempos as well as characteristic riffs together with the melodic and emotional vocals of the singer, are the main features of this album. The keyboards are creating their own musical paintings inside the songs, carefully placed in the right parts to emphasize their dark melodies.

Veni Domine have their own sound: majestic and dark, cause that is simply the way they handle it. They manage to keep the interest of the listener at high levels whenever the melodic themes are changing and this fast great breaking is taking place. This album is the strongest evidence that the band has returned. Compositions full of passion, expressing strong emotions, majestic hymns and silent dirges: the music of this band is able to touch your soul. No, here you won't find any happy songs but mournful hymns to angels, expressed in majestic ways. Listen to songs like 'Doom of Man', 'The Healing the Mystery' and 'River of Life (Part 1)' and you will understand my point.
