Specialists/collaborators reviews

Warthur
Displaying, to my ears, a little more influence from more mainstream heavy metal and hardwork than Solitude Aeturnus displayed on their previous two albums (which were more in the vein of Candlemass-esque traditional doom metal), Through the Darkest Hour actually benefits from this, being able to provide some good old doom and gloom on the one hand whilst being sufficiently varied to help retain the listener's interest on the other. They'd fairly soon revert to a more purist underground style, but this release did pave the way for more variation in their sound, which the subsequent Downfall would benefit from - having expanded their sound here, the group made more precedent for their inclusion of a Christian Death cover there, for example.
