Rated 3/5 (60%) (4 Votes)

This is pretty much what I expect out of 'depressive' Black Metal: long songs, slow playing, and bleak vocals. This kind of thing can be done well - sometimes very well - but I find Photophobia rather one-note. The guitars grind along, the vocals howl at the same pitch throughout, and the whole thing describes no kind emotional arc whatsoever - it starts at the bottom, and there is nothing to distinguish any one part from another. It's not bad, but it gets old fast.

Additional Information

The band consists of members from Finland, Italy and the USA.
