Following the pattern "an album every 2 years" the Swedish doom rockers from MORTALICUM release their third and doomiest one, with longest and slowest songs, in the spring of 2014. Those who loved the band's more NWOBHM and hard rocking side need not worry though: it's still very much present on this album; the more upbeat songs have really infectious riffs and just call for headbanging. Henrik's vocals are flawless as ever - he delivers superb melodies with his clear and pretty unique voice and puts as much emotion into them as into his soulful solos. All the while the tight and heavy rhythm section provides a strong backbone to their songs, and the organic production gives enough room to breathe for every instrument. An album that will surely please fans of BLACK SABBATH, GRAND MAGUS, SPIRITUAL BEGGARS, CANDLEMASS and TROUBLE, as well as bands like DEEP PURPLE, RAINBOW, THIN LIZZY or SAMSON.
• 3rd full-length album of this Swedish doom-rocking band.
• Great vintage, heavy and crispy sound.
• For fans of: Black Sabbath, Grand Magus, Rainbow, Spiritual Beggars, Wall of Sleep, Candlemass, Trouble, Deep Purple, Thin Lizzy...
