Cemetary : Sundown

The first thing I think of when I hear this album is Paradise Lost. This band undoubtedly has found some influence there. Which is not a bad thing of course, because they do a lot with it. They add some grooves, some more gothic feel, quite some keyboards and play their songs a bit more mid-tempo.

If I am not mistaken, some members of this band left it to begin a new band called Sundown after this album. The band Sundown plays music very much in the vein of this album, though a little softer and more electronic [Note by editor: Only their first. The second Sundown album has an industrial sound like Nine Inch Nails].

On this album we hear nicely worked out guitar melodies, real "songs" that stand on theirselves. Vocals are somewhere in between singing and screaming, slightly altered electronically. Also keyboards have an important role in the melodies. The lyrics are very doomy (for those who know: a bit in the vein of Sentenced) and quite poetic. All in all a very nice album. Not so very heavy, not true doom-metal, but maybe very appreciable for those who also like mid-tempo, slightly animated (and dare I say danceable?) doomy metal.
