For those with gloom in their hearts this is a dark titbit. The mood is set for total doom in the kingdom of German Ophis. Most of the CD goes with around 30 bpm except for a few tracks where things are fired up a bit. You have the feeling that this is only to make completely sure that no one is bored along the way. This is, by no means, a boring album – not at all.
On the contrary, on the right day, this is a very, very good album. When you’re down there and ready to kill all your neighbours because they’re just too sodding happy-go-lucky, this is really it, my friends.
‘Stream of Misery’ is definitely worth a try for those who dig My Dying Bride – it’s a grim world, and you better believe it.
