Review


This one-man band shows promise, but is not quite as good as it wants to be. There is some fine melodic guitar work on this disc, and it does manage to create some atmosphere, but it lacks a unified sound, and after over an hour you get the feeling of listening to someone throw pain at the wall and hoping enough sticks to make a whole album. This band is very much under the influence of My Dying Bride, only thankfully they went with harsh vocals. The vocals are okay — a bit dry — but they do get a little monotonous after a while. A lot of the songs, even the stronger ones like "Queen of the Night" and "Under an Ancient Oak" are longer than they need to be by a lot.

This has fine moments, and the guy has obvious talent and potential to be great at this, but this drags too much to be really excellent. I don't hate this, and it makes good background music with occasional passages that really get the blood going, but it's not as good as it wants to be. For genre fans, and a band to watch.
