In Grey : Above



Why these guys decided to send their two-song promo to doom-metal.com, is still a mystery to me. Not that I don't like receiving promo's (far from that), but, although they describe their sound as 'modern gothic metal', In Grey actually play quality gothic rock with a 'heavier than average' guitar sound.

No, you'll find no Theatre of Tragedy vocal interplays or Trail of Tears bombast here. The two short tracks remind rather of bands like new Paradise Lost (especially 'One second' era), new Katatonia and The Loveless. Also fans of the usual suspects in the gothic rock genre (The Sisters', Fields of the Nephilim, and especially Desire because of their similar, harder guitar sound) might see something in this catchy, melodic material. The title track sounds very radio friendly, with a catchy sing along chorus, but I'm afraid that it's not going to appeal to most doom-metal fans anyway.

Gothic rock fans who aren't afraid of a harder guitar sound (do these people actually read doom-metal.com reviews?) and doom fans who also dig some nice, dark gothic rock, visit their website at www.in-grey.com for more information about this band.
