When Nothing Remains - As all Torn Assunder
This is a great debute from a promising swedish death/doom metal band. Hailing from Gothenburg, this band know how to pummle out hard, crushing and shugging riffs, but not only do they play heavy brootal metal music, NO!!. They add a symphonic orchestra or some synths in the background which drives the metal instruments. Rather then the metal instruments are driving the music, it is the symphonic backdrop which commands the music and its structure (melodies and arrangements), which makes the music a grand statemen, a powerfull listening experience, and will make this band hit home in a larger field of the metal community then in the doom metal scene.
The music on this album will hit home to fans of power metal, thrash metal, sludge/post metal and progressive metal, there is alot of elements in the music preformed on this album. Very epic, and big at times, i will not take one song over any other as this album must be listend to in one go and all the songs combined makes this album a true listening experience, of both dark horror, but also prestine beauty.
Imagine Danny Elfmen being hosted by Loki. a twisted metal album that mends the dark and light, moody with brisk, to such a listening experience that it will tingle gently all your sences and fealings till you gasp for air of pure extatic sensation. A powerfull statemnt and a powerfull album.
!!!...Essential: a masterpiece of metal music...!!!
