|Compared to their first mCD this album is a little maturer. However don't think these guys lost any of their previous urge to experiment or their insanity. Now combining more neo-classical and darkwave elements into the music the music has more structure and depth.|
The album is actually a concept album and tells the tale of Count Vlad, better known as Dracula. The clean vocals by Greg Ball have become ever weirder then before and Clint Listings grunt seems to have grown in depth and strength. This album again has a cover, the rather unexpected cover Kansas's 'Carry On'. The song has been surgically pulled apart by Long Winters' Stare and then put back together again.
Not as heavy as most other doom-metal releases and a lot stranger and more experimental this album will once more not be an album that will appeal to a great deal of people. But it is easier to digest than their previous mCD and well worth the effort getting into.
