THE 3RD AND THE MORTAL are a doomy, gothic sounding band out of Norway. This is their second release and probably my favourite. I love how experimental it is and all the different sounds that can be heard throughout. The trombone on that first track with that industrial rhythm is intersting. More horns on "Commemoration" with what sounds like static.Great sound when it kicks in with a heavy mid-paced groove.Vocals follow and we get mellotron too. "Persistant And Fleeting" is almost eerie with those background sounds as we get vocal melodies over top. When it kicks in i'm reminded of THE GATHERING. Nice. "White Waters" is brighter while "Azure" is a dark and powerful soundscape.There's a lot of variety on this record and man this is one album i can easily drift away to in my mind. Easily 4 stars and highly recommended.

At this point, 3rd and the Mortal had only the faintest connection with the style of gothic metal they had helped to inaugurate with their debut - oh, the female vocals, doomy riffs and other hallmarks of the genre are still there, but they're just one feature of a much more diverse smorgasboard of ingredients. Crammed with sonic experimentations and ambient textures, at points the album is reminiscent of the jazz-tinged soundscapes of the early post-rock scene, though 3rd and the Mortal have a very different approach to taking on those influences than exhibited by many subsequent post-metal bands. On the whole, this is gothic metal gone deliriously avant-garde, creating a brilliantly original sound in the process.
