THE SINS OF THY BELOVED LAKE OF SORROW reviews

Specialists/collaborators reviews

Warthur
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.

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!
