Pale Divine

Rated 3.13/5 (62.5%) (8 Votes)

Pale Divine have spent better than twenty years knocking around as what you might call "doom stalwarts", which basically means they are a solid, reliable band who have never made anything terrible, but neither have they made anything that great. They always get a good, fat guitar sound, play some good Doom riffs, and put together some solid songs. Guitarist/Vocalist Greg Diener has been getting better and better as a singer, and while he will never be great, he has learned to sing with all the passion and grit he can muster and to work within his abilities. So Pale Divine continue their track record of being a good band—in fact, as good as I think they can get—but they will never be a great one. Overall, I think Painted Windows Black was a better disc, but this one is fine.
