|I am not familiar with this Polish act's first album 'Melancholy' but judging from Kostas his words, I assume that it is a lot better than this one. 'Deepression' with a double "ee" (I guess it is a clever wordplay mixing "deep" and "depression" but it looks more like a misprint, so not that clever after all), is one of the most uninspired works I have heard in some time. Musically, this band is not bad. They mix doom-metal and gothic-metal quite adequately but fail to evoke any feelings in me. |
The problem is that they just mixed in too many styles: grunts, clean vocals, spoken word, violins and female vocals all pass by on this album. One moment they remind me of My Dying Bride, the other of Theatre of Tragedy and the next of Moonspell. Also I am anything but impressed with the clean vocals. Please, if you can't sing then stick to grunting!
I can't help but get the feeling the band tried to use as many "popular" ideas from the gothic/doom genre as they could find and put them into one album, causing the music to be overcrowded, unfocused and devoid of any real emotion. What a shame.
