The Sins of Thy Beloved is a gothic doom metal band, formed in Bryne, Norway in November 1996. The band currently consists of Anita Auglend (vocals), Glenn Morten Nordbø (guitars, vocals), Arild Christensen (guitars, vocals), Ola Aarrestad (bass), Maike Olaisen (keyboards), and Stig Johansen (drums).

The band was formed by Glenn Morten Nordbø, Arild Christensen, and Stig Johansen. The band was initially called "Purgatory" but they soon decided to change their name to something less common. Anita Auglend and Ola Aarrestad joined the band shortly thereafter, and they recorded their first demo "All Alone" in January-February 1997. Anders Thue and Ingfrid Stensland then joined before they recorded their second demo "Silent Pain" in January 1998. Pete Johansen played the violin on that demo though he did not officially joined the band until the recording of their first full-length album "Lake of Sorrow" later in 1998. They toured across Europe, before

Searching for the "ultimate" beaty and the beast album? Search no further, you found it here. Anita has an angelical voice, which makes this album a pleasure to listen to. The melodies are very strong, and haunting. The musicianship is perfect. The trademark of this album though is not the vocals, but the incredably beautiful violin play of Pete Johansen, which make this a unique album. The "beast" vocals are well done, and don't scare away someone who doesn't like them a lot. Highlights are "My love", which starts with a huge grunt, but develops after that into a beautiful violin driven song, "Until the Dark" which is the only song with clean vocals and "All Alone". The rest is also beautiful... You won't see the terms "lovely" and "beautiful" uttered on a metal site in one review, but here they come together. Five well deserved stars for this great album!

Whilst The Sins of Thy Beloved's debut album was an archetypal work in the "beauty and the beast" style of gothic metal, their second album was a stereotypical one. The differences are subtle, admittedly, and may well come down a matter of taste, but whilst to my ears the debut album was an example of the beauty and the beast formula applied perfectly and showcasing all the best aspects of that sound, the second album applies the formula slavishly and exhibits only the typical qualities of that sound.

It's a thin difference, I admit, and those who particularly fell in love with the first album may well find plenty to like here, but I can't listen to this one without wanting to just stop and go back to the debut again.

The debut album by The Sins of Thy Beloved is an archetypal example of the "beauty and the beast" approach to gothic metal: take clean female vocals from Anita Auglend, add death metal grunts from Glenn Nordbø, and lay it over doomy gothic metal and serve with romantic and depressing lyrics. Sins spice up the formula markedly with the inclusion of Pete Johansen in the lineup on violin, his beautiful violin lines essentially being the musical counterpart to Anita's vocals which serve as a neat counterpoint to the doomy riffs the songs are built on. If you like this style of metal at all, you'll probably love this.
