Morphia : Unfulfilled Dreams



Can I have your attention, melacholic soulmates: the Netherlands gained with Morphia a band that is able to take over the legacy of the first Celestial Season albums and the late Officium Triste [note by editor: Officium Triste have reformed after the review was written].

'Unfulfilled Dreams' is an excellent album, left comfortably off in every detail and leaning heavily towards the sound of the early Anathema and My Dying Bride masterpieces. Melody and drama are combined following the well-known concept of utterly heavy guitar work alternated with piano and keyboards.

The tempo is generally pretty low, and that could be the only problem with this work; the long tracks could use a bit more of contrast, but there is no use picking holes. Buy that album right now, the underground overcomes once again the mainstream.
