Review

Few Doom Metal acts catch my attention, so it was with pleasure that I listened to this new band, The Foreshadowing. The band has all the great ingredients that a Doom Metal fan will look for. Wrapped in a very good sound production, indulge yourself in great melodies of intensity and drama. Blast beats are forbidden here but, mid to slow paces are the rule. Fat/crushing guitar riffs meet nicely melodic clean arpeggios, all of which literally facing a wall of percussion. Emotional and orchestral keyboards echoing the sophistication of their song writing. No harsh vocals, something pretty uncommon in Doom Metal, but man what a great voice this singer has, somewhat reminiscent of the famous My Dying Bride.

Days of Nothing is perhaps not the most original, but it is very tasty Doom Metal. Many tracks are worth mentioning, but just to name a few here: Cold Waste, The Wanderer, Eschaton and The Fall.



Track Listing:
  1. Cold Waste
  2. The Wandering
  3. Death is Our Freedom
  4. Departure
  5. Eschaton

  7. Ladykiller
  8. The Fall
