This is Lefay's first album since the name change from Morgana Lefay (legal stuff...) If I had to describe this album in one word it would be: dark. Speed addicts will want to run away from this album which is pure heavy metal, where the emphasis is put on heaviness rather than speed. The album is so dark that it is just downright depressing at times.
"Darkness" put aside, the only song I found that really stands apart is Child Of Time which is a little bit speedier than the others, and is definitely less depressing than the rest of the album. This is not an album I really enjoy listening to, although the band's experience is well represented in the songwriting and the musicianship. The vocals are somewhat annoying at times, but are well suited to the overall dark feeling of the album.
I wouldn't categorize The Seventh Seal as an album you'll either love or hate... I think most people will stand in between, as there is quite a bit of diversity throughout the ten songs. Let's wait and see what their new album, S.O.S., has to offer.
