In Memories

Rated 3.6/5 (72%) (5 Votes)

First off, this stuff isn't really my cup of tea but I wanted to give it a fair shot.

Ukrainian band I Miss My Death does not look like a Metal act at all but they sound amazingly powerful and heavy, i.e. Metal. The soprano voice of Elena Kryvoyaz combined with the death growls and grunts of Sergiy Kryvoyaz pretty much steal the show on the band's debut album In Memories. Both vocalists are impressive in their own categories. On In Memories, I Miss My Death combines into their pompous sound elements from Doom, Gothic and Death Metal, with occasional Gregorian-style choirs, and they have managed to come up with a strong album that has lots of character to it. I Miss My Death's songs contain many appealing and catchy melodies and have the potential to appeal to people who dig bands like My Dying Bride, Tristania, Paradise Lost, Septic Flesh and other bands that have a heart filled with sadness and melancholy pumping in their artistic chests.

So yeah, they are definitely good at what they do, and can also be credited for putting out a strong debut. However, what they should do next time is cut down the length of their next release to 50-60 minutes, max. There's more than 75 minutes of music on the album and I had a hard time keeping my mind focused all the time. Overly lengthy albums, in general, are rarely successful at pleasing many people anyway, so...

Here's something for especially for fans of Doom/Gothic Metal but others may also find some guilty pleasure, as well.
