Be My God

Rated 3.2/5 (64%) (5 Votes)

I know there are quite a few of you out there that like the melodic metal that bands like Lacuna Coil, Sentenced, The Gathering and Amorphis release and if you like any three of these bands I am positive you will like this album as well.

Lullacry is a Finnish band that recorded their first demo in 1998 (Weepers Aeon) and followed that immediately with 2 promotional recordings (Sweet Desire and Alone) the following year. In 1998 they released their first full-length album (Sweet Desire) for Heart, Trust and Respect Records. After quite a bit of exposure in the Finnish music scene they were signed by Spikefarm Records at the end of 2000. This collaboration results in this excellent album entitled "Be My God".

This album is gothic-influenced metal that is extremely well played. The musicianship is above the average and the songs are very groove oriented with excellent vocals. The songwriting here is what really stands out. Through 11 tracks they never repeat themselves and each and every song is easily identifiable after only a few spins. Very memorable and catchy riffs abound and the tone is just excellent. The drum work is a clinic on how to give music the extra punch it needs without becoming a focal point in itself. There isn't really anything bad I can say about this album especially considering I am not a huge fan of the genre (I like my music a little more aggressive..:)). I will admit though this is an extremely good "Girl friend" friendly disc.

Overall I will say if you are into this genre or are just a fan of some the bands I mentioned earlier do yourself a favor and check this out I am positive this will appeal to you as well. Highly Recommended.
