|I do not make it a habit of reviewing bootlegs, but since this one is supported by Avernus themselves and since it impressed me a lot, I will make an exception here.|
'Where Forgotten Shadows Die' is a live registration of a show on the 17th of September 2000 featuring 3 songs from the 'Sadness' demo ('An Endless Sea of Evening', 'The Faustian Heart' and 'Anastasia') and two new and unreleased tracks ('The Isolationist' and 'A Rift in Aura').
The sound quality is surprisingly good and it's great to hear that Avernus have no problem at all playing these tracks live. The sad and depressive nature of the songs is kept intact, something that not every doom band can claim when they play live.
Especially the new tracks are really exciting to hear. It is an almost complete return to the 'Sadness' demo years. Sad and soul crushing music, grunts and the occasional clean vocals. My hat goes off for these guys and if these two songs mean anything then I can not wait to hear a full length new album (come on labels sign this band!!).
