Ashes You Leave : The Passage Back to Life



I eagerly awaited to hear this album, since Ashes You Leave come from my country. After I heard this album has a style similar to doom icons My Dying Bride, my expectations were pretty high.

I'm sad to say I was soon disappointed. Somewhere around track three, to be more precise, when I realized this is a 'Turn Loose the Swans' rip-off. The similarities are so obvious and so common that I lost any interest in this album whatsoever. From the clean and death vocal combination, to the slow passages in contrast to the fast parts, this album has 'Turn Loose the Swans' written all over it. Not to mention countless other similarities which for me proved to be the drop that spilled the cup.

As hard as I might have tried, I have failed to find anything original or even remotely interesting here. It has all been done before, and more than once.
