Best viewed without Internet Explorer, in x resolution or higher. My reviews of Doom metal albums are few and far between. That was until now. Needless to say, I was most interested in Over And Over Again (Lost And Found) - Clap Your Hands Say Yeah - Clap Your Hands Say Yeah their debut album had to offer to the style.
For the most part, you know pretty much what you are going to get with Doom metal, particularly if you are a fan of the classic sound. As a style, Doom metal is one of least progressive forms of heavy music around.
Understanding this, Doomshine are most certainly not here to provide a new take on the style. Their influences may be obvious, but at the very least Doomshine provide fans with some new blood in the Doom scene.
This is an extremely impressive Doom metal disc that instantly recalls many of those classic acts I mentioned at the top of this review. As a direct comparison, it Valiant Child Of War - Doomshine - Thy Kingdoom Come clear that Doomshine hold their contemporaries such as Candlemass and Solitude Aeturnus in high regard. Very much the traditional epic doom metal set down by the masters of the style. I am also impressed with the bands ability to incorporate acoustic elements and haunting keys within the basic riff structures.
They really give their songs impressive peaks and valleys — great balancing characteristics essential for any good Doom Metal album. However, I get back to what Doom Metal is all about - Slow, brooding heaviness that evokes an emotive response — mainly sadness and melancholy. I had the opportunity to know this band by chance.
Their name just click on my mind and I decided to find the album of this band and I did it! The cover prepare us for the fateful sounds of this band. A promising new metal band for sure. Surely interesting and catchy title here but the magic comes when you hear this song. The track starts with a classic memorable doom metal riff full of power and emotion,a little guitar solo and here we are! The vocals of Tim Holz enthrall you for the first time you hear to them.
The lyrics! Oh,the lyrics are just poetry. I think that the lyrics play an important role in bands such as Doomshine because they must find prototypical themes about the desperation and the despair. The vocals change with the rhythm changes and this is absolutely perfect thing and the song is being better with changes like these. The guitar solo also here is awesome and fantastic,very good effort from Doomshine.
We here the quiet guitar sound and the vocals of Tim Holz which are again fitted in the atmosphere of the song. An atmosphere different from the first song. In this song you have the impression that the grief and the desperation comes to you like a cool air breeze. Perfect feeling. Again we listen a passional and powerful guitar solo.
Another awesome song from Doomshine! Perfect work! Doomshine have the ability to combine the heaviness with a desperate feeling and this thing made me like this band. The lyrics are also remain perfect after two songs and the trip to their dreams and their fears continues with a steady rhythm.
The song starts with a slow,baneful riff. The music here is just hypnotizing you. Emotions and feelings drift through your head and your soul. Another very good song from Doomshine and i cant understand where this trip of despair will end!
The fifth and sixth song are the continuance of the sad angel legend. Music and lyrics are combined perfectly in the story of the sad angel. I think that the first and the last song of this story the fourth and the sixth in the album are the best. Another strong guitar riff here and good rhythm changes. The song slows down after the first minutes and becomes absolutely perfect. Very good music here.
The guitar solo in this song is also Valiant Child Of War - Doomshine - Thy Kingdoom Come and full of heaviness. A slow doom metal riff in the start and the emotional scream of Tim Holz. Then the song slows down,a quiet guitar melody and the atmospheric vocals of Tim Holz which give many points to the whole atmosphere of the album. There is also a symbolism here in the lyrics,a secret symbolism which says that the injustice still dominates the world. Another good song from Doomshine here.
I think that this is the most Let Him Run - Night Ranger - Midnight Madness song in the album. All the songs have an epic taste but this is something different. The lyrical theme is also about war and memories. The sorrow Valiant Child Of War - Doomshine - Thy Kingdoom Come the woe of war and the lovely memories that make the soldier feels pain about the lost things in the war.
This song is one of my favorites in the albuim,full of this epic feeling. A really emotional song here and a perfect end for the album. I Holiday In Cambodia - London Punkharmonic Orchestra* - Symphony Of Destruction: Punk Goes Classical that this album is one of the best debuts in The band is very promising and if continue like that they will sure make a big audience.
Their music is absolutely perfect. Full of heaviness power and emotion. Metal Archives loading Username Password Login. Bands alphabetical country genre Labels alphabetical country Reviews R.
