From their demo compilation I did not expect this to be any good, but it is surprisingly solid. Sorrows Path play an epic style of traditional Doom with a lot of straight-up Heavy Metal influence and a kick of Middle Eastern music to give it a unique flavor. Some of the guitarwork on here is really, really good, with killer riffs and a lot of shade and harmony piled on top to make the sound really rich and textured. If I had to compare this to anyone it would be Turkey's Mezarkabul, who play a similar style of melodic, Doom-styled music.
Vocalist Angelos Ioannidis has improved a lot too, though he's still not first-rate, at least he is on-key this time. His problem is that the vocal lines here are not nearly as good as the rest of the music, and his repetitive, awkward melodies don't do anything to punch up the music and make it better. Still, compared to what I expected, this is definitely an album worth hearing and a band worth keeping an eye on.
