The closest I can describe these guys' sound is 'Watching From A Distance' mixed with 'Mournful Cries'. Brilliant Swedish doom metal, with a strange, almost religious atmosphere. For anyone who may be turned off by a band that sounds like Warning (Azurenight perhaps ), fear not - the vocals here are a lot more in line with classic doom. I cant really describe them in greater detail, as I am horribly hungover. But I guarantee itll be one of those bands where you hear an interesting track, think nothing of it, and then suddenly, out of nowhere, get an urge to listen to it again.

I want to try that while playing the opening riff to "Tempting Time".

0-0-0-13-0-0-0-0-13 or something like that alalalala but It;s so heavy and off time and awesome and you could not f**k anyone to it.

You prick. I had this band wrote down on a note card with a slew of other bands I was gonna make a thread on. But good stuff right here. Musically, I'm also reminded a bit of the slower parts of Rev. Bizz. with the emotional impact of the aforementioned Warning. Solemn, Sacred , Severe is a class album nonetheless!

How many of those bands will be ones that I also had planned to make threads on

And yeah some of the RevBiz material like 'Hour of Death' and 'Strange Horizon' definitely has an influence on these dudes. Seeing them live at Dublin Doom Day, cant wait!

Also yay MySpace.

Ok it was pretty good, but it was far too lacking for me to listen to it regularly. The vocals are by far the best part. Epic, but almost....tortured. The riffing is atrocious though. I mean it isn't horrible, but it drudges along at an almost funeral doom pace. I feel like I've heard all these riffs hundreds of times before.

Boring.

But then again I may just not be in the mood for this kind of...epic funeral doom? I'll give it another shot later. LOVED the vocals though.
#13
Vocals are what makes it for me. Its a quare beast of an album alright, It took me a month or two to get into it - then there was the whole buzz with them playing over here etc etc so I checked them out again and bam!

amirite?


These guys just got me back into doom. Been listening to as much doom as my computer will hold.
#15
I prefer two in the goo, one in the poo myself...


For some reason I had an image of your computer as an ancient oaken casket with just one big rune that says 'play'. Thats when you know your computer has enough classic doom.

This is up there with Watching From A Distance. Real oppressive, religious atmosphere....their split 7'' with Count Raven is out soon too.

Are you lumping it in with Watching from a Distance? or are you just mildly hinting at a few traits?


Although most things reminiscent of that Watching from a Distance are probably worth checking out. I can't wait though. Well, I can.
#20
Holy shit, upon listening to this Solemn, Sacred, Sever, I;m pleasantly surprised to note that it is one of the best Doom albums I've ever heard. I think it's way better than Watching from a Distance. Leaps and bounds, though Watching from a Distance is great.

Punishment and Ordeal is flawless.

I found that extremely boring. The instrumentation was just bland and didn't offer anything, and the vocals sounded like a lesser Matt Bellamy at points.

Meh.

I've given Solemn, Sacred, Severe a few listens now. It's ****ing brilliant. I'll always listen to this with Watching From A Distance And Sorrow and Extinction.
