Review by Tony Cannella
On their 2010 debut album “Perversion LTD.”, the Dutch melodic Gothic metal band Sin7sinS hit the mark with an impressive debut, now with their sophomore album “Carnival of No Tomorrow”, the band has reached another gear.
The ominous intro to the opening track “Brimstone Ignition” gives way to some slamming guitars as the clean vocals of Lotus joins in. She is accompanied by some male vocals on this opening track. In addition to Lotus – who is the focal point of the band – she is surrounded by some solid musicians. The next track “Sick of You” is brimming with attitude and a killer melody; this instantly became a favorite. “Pornstar Love” keeps things on course and has an electronic vibe to it on parts of the song.

I have to say that it was a surprise to rediscover the duo Tom Simonsen and Cecilie Langlie in another musical project. Havnatt, Omit, Skumring…I have lost count! The most interesting thing is that each one offers a different sound thanks also to the contribution, in the case of Vagrant God, of another musician. In fact Kjetil Ottersen plays the guitar and the keyboard which definitely abound in this debut album. His name should not pass by unnoticed to the lovers of doom metal since he was the guitarist of the metal band Funeral. And the name of our Norwegian band comes from the 5th track of their album “From These Wounds”: Vagrant God.
Listening to Havnatt I wondered how Cecilie‘s voice could be in a metal band. Continue reading »

Review by Vard Aman
I have waxed lyrical before about well played Doom Metal, but as it’s been a while let me remind you. Doom Metal is one of the most extreme forms of music around; slow, powerful, stirring, epic and dark. Doom Metal is usually associated with scenarios of despair, sombreness, emptiness and grief; but when played well, it creates an uplifting release through these scenarios: a blissful oneness with the despair and the emptiness. It opens the darkness up so that you may own it and rule it: the powerful, yet haunting atmospheric and melodic sound of desolation consumes you, and as it does so it lifts you up above it as its master and holds you there for as long as you are willing to be ruler of the darkened depths, instead of a mere overlooked unit in the overcrowded shallows.
