Warthur
The fourth Solitude Aeturnus album is an absolutely fantastic listen from a band who sound so much more confidence and self-assured here than on their first two albums. Aside from Deathwish - a cover of a classic-era Christian Death song which is very true to the rough, dirty, punkish original - the name of the game here is depressive doom metal inspired by Sabbath and Candlemass, with powerful vocals verging on the operatic by the magnificent Robert Lowe. So, not a radical departure from the band's usual formula - just an exceptionally skilled application of it which any doom metal fans will be well-advised to give a listen to.
