Rated 4/5 (80%) (2 Votes)

This is a long-running Finnish band with a genuinely tongue-twisting name (which means "Death Valley"—believe it or not). The style here is a heavy Doom/Death approach with some gothic flourishes and vocals that range from passable clean singing to quite bad croaking harsh vocals. The riffs here are pretty good, and the production is decent, even if it doesn't have much personality. I would say that is a problem for this band overall, as there is just nothing here you have not heard from better bands. There's not much that is actively wrong with this, but it's just kind of there.
