When The Deadbolt Breaks : In The Ruins, No Light Shall Shine

I'm totally confused. Hardcore, Doom Metal, Death Metal, Neurosis, YOB, and female vocals are some of the ingredients on 'In The Ruins, No Light Shall Shine'.

Their debut album starts off with a song that is not Doom Metal in any way and continues to surprise you until the CD suddenly stops at its end. The main part is focused on slow and heavy music, but every once in a while, they fill up their tanks with rocket fuel and go crazy.

Sound interesting? Well, if the songs would give the impression that they were recorded by the same artist all the way, I would probably love the release. They should have used the female vocals, which are used in a very untypical way for this kind of music, more since they really add something to the whole.

As you can imagine this album does not get boring. I would like it a little more homogeneous though. Next time maybe?
