    5/10 Really great guitar tone. I like how deep and heavy it sounds. The riffs and solo are also solidly executed. However, I dislike the vocalist. His voice seems too detached from the rest of the song. Whereas the guitar is dark and heavy, his vocals sound too bright (almost excited/happy) and a bit high for the song.

    Thanks for the recommendation! "In Solitary Ruin" - Evoken "Lay Your Woes Upon the Ground and Know that the End Will Soon Swallow You" - Cavernlight "Constructing a Spire to Pierce and Poison the Infinite" - Cavernlight "Wander, Part II" - Cavernlight After listening to a few tracks, I must say that this band is awesome. Great drones and atmosphere. Thanks @FatherAlabaster!

    5/10 I did not particularly like the guitar. The main riff was a bit uninteresting to me, though I did enjoy the acoustic portions and the solo. For me, however, the vocalist was the star of the song. His clean vocals sounded as good as one could hope to find in metal music, and they fit the folkish vibe of the music perfectly.

    "Dueil Angoisseus" - Peste Noire "State of Non-Return" - Om "Meditation is the Practice of Death" - Om "Addis" - Om There were some cool riffs on that one, though the sound seemed a little echoy and strange. I will definitely have to explore some of the darker parts of Doom Metal. Any recommendations for specific albums to start with?

    Thanks for the recommendation! That song was cool, I will have to check out more of their work.
  8. The Spooky Stuff Thread

    I think that I still believe in spirits and so forth (at least I want to believe). I used to be into this stuff a lot as a kid. Now, however, I am trying to be as critical of it as I possibly can. I want truth, not confirmation bias.

    7/10 I really do not care for the sound of the vocalist's voice. I think that it sounds a little to high for my taste. The second singer at the end was a nice touch though. The guitar work is pretty good, especially the acoustic interludes (which provide an interesting counterpoint to the strummed riffs). The riffs themselves seem a bit typical, but they are competently rendered. The tone of the guitars and drums are pretty good as well - deep-sounding and solid. I like also that the bass adds to the melody in the portions where the guitars take a more backseat role. Overall, I think that it was a pretty decent song.

    Welcome! Metallica got me into metal as well.

    I actually liked it quite a bit. It was drawn out, atmospheric, and almost droning. It reminded me a bit of Paysage d'Hiver. I don't usually listen to doom metal (there is no real reason - I just tend not to), but from the songs that I have come across, I really need to look into it more.

    I realized that it was the wrong title to share. I had just copy and pasted it from the bandcamp page. I had actually just been listening to one of the songs on a bandcamp article that had linked to Evoken, so listing the album title was a mistake on my part.
