A Caress of the Void
Style: Doom
Release date: November 20th 2007

Holy mother, after listening this one I went straight under medical treatment. Pills against depressive mood were the cure. This is not food for happy power metal freaks. Compared with Evoken, bands as Swallow the Sun and Candlemass play speed-metal. This is not doom, but DOOOOOOOOOOOOOMMMMMMM.

Their music can be compared a little with Winter. My Dying Bride plays happy music compared with Evoken . The music is miserable, negative, aggressive, awful and beautifully slow, just as real doom should be. 

If you are into the doom genre, you found another pearl. For me it is all to slow and depressive, lets put on some.... Dragonforce .
