It is time
to slow down... Germany's premier doom metal band Doomshine is back with
their sophomore album, entitled "The Piper at the Gates of Doom", yes a spin-off
of Pink Floyd's debut album from 1967.
Only a few
doom metal bands have the depth and ideas to keep me on the edge of the seat for
an entire album, Doomshine is one of them, and what they have conceived
here belongs to the absolute elite of doom metal, in the area where only
Solitude Aeturnus and Candlemass lingers.
thing missing here for this album to challenge my all-time favourite doom metal
album Candlemass' "Nightfall" is that one song of the calibre of "Samarithan".
The ten songs they have written have the trademarks, quality and depth any high
quality doom song needs, and this album has classic written all over it. Need I
mention that this is a mandatory purchase for metal fans of all kinds...
album of the year!
