Rated 3.6/5 (72%) (5 Votes)

Now here's a cool-sounding Belgian band playing a mix of doom and death metal, and they are doing it with style. Even with only four songs and 29+ minutes, I enjoyed the heck out of this.

Comparisons to Paradise Lost and My Dying Bride can easily be made, not only by virtue of covering the former's "As I Die", but also because they embody the same songwriting ethics found in both bands. These Belgians differentiate themselves from their influences through the interplay between grunts, shrieks, and clean vocals, and occasionally employing a faster tempo than is the norm for doom/death, particularly in the title track. The epic "A Departing Guest" puts all the pieces together to create both a perfect symbiosis of doom and death metal and a damn fine example of what this band can do at full power. The aforementioned cover of "As I Die" also works well for them, sounding pretty close to the original version of the song while the vocals differentiate it enough to be more than just a direct retread.

Don't hesitate—check this out!
