Look, I've got to be honest with you- when it comes to the career history of Cemetary, like pioneers Therion, when they first came on to the scene in the early nineties they had the potential to be the reigning lords of the Swedish death metal genre. "An evil shade of grey and Beyond Sanctorum" are two of the best albums ever to come out in this sector, but where differences differ- in a sense is that Therion went on to at least another decades worth of innovative but puzzling opera metal. Cemetary instead went head first into a template of boring and wasteland goth rock, but that transition wasn't yet fully set in motion on this second effort from the band, but it was clear even (at this stage) that they had no intention of repeating the pristine results they had achieved on their debut album "An evil shade of grey".

That said, "Godless Beauty" is still an excellent album fully worthy of both technical and progressive metal- merit. There is still some sign of that Swedish buzz and bottom end but the album doesn't have the bass or power behind it to truly rank as a full on and committed death metal album. There is a variety of different songwriting and influence experimentation going on here, lots of little nuances, melodic undercurrents and unexpected sounds. The album is certainly a very strong one, always united by a high standard and quality of songs; I found it all to be highly enjoyable- it's just a shame therefore that after this they descended into a mirky world of obscurity and a equal set of unimaginative follow-up albums.

Godless beauty:- Recommended for fans of "To ride - era Entombed" and other death metal/death & roll/melodic hybrid metal music. 4.5/5

Godless beauty is one of my true loves 11 Dec. 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is one of the few CD's that I would call perfect. I love every song. When I first listened to this album, my whole world was changed. It definitely deserves all 5 stars. If you like Paradise Lost - "gothic", Lake of Tears - "headstones" or The Gathering - "always...", go get it! You will be glad you did!

Landmark release for Death Metal 12 Jan. 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Truly a masterpiece. One of the very first bands to mix in 70's rock and melody with the death style. Very straight-forward death rock that is definitely worth checking out. Hunt for this classic. If you like old Paradise Lost or that style, you'll dig this.

An unsung classic you have never heard 14 April 2005
By Jeremy Whitman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Mathias Loldmalm had a vision that came to be with the release of Godless Beauty. It's predecessor, An Evil Shade Of Gray, was an immature journey into the fundamentals of melodic metal, but the inclusion of more traditional songwriting and Loldmalm's fantastic lead melodies brought the bar of doom/death metal higher than it's ever been.

We begin the album with an upbeat, more death metal oriented intro that quickly disperses into the haunting monstrosity of "The Serpent's Kiss." Album's should be judged by glimpses of brilliance that the respective artist has touched, and this release has three:

"By My Own Hand" feels almost sincere regarding lost loves and the enticing embrace of death. The lyrics here are dark, but beautiful and universal, while the chorus melody packs more emotion into one song than any musician could hope for. "Adrift In Scarlet Twilight" is graced by one of the greatest doom riffs ever concieved, both melodic rhythmically and driving for the hardcore metal fan. "Where the Fire Forever Burns" is the ultimate farwell, or epilogue, to any album. It begins low-key, only to climax with phenomenal lyrical passages and a incessant bombardment of melodies that will be etched in the listener's head for years to come.

I could never explain how much I have adored this album since I first heard it in '94, but I might as well say that it hasn't left arm's reach of my CD player since I purchased it. As a doom/death metal album, it is considered a semi-classic, but I consider it a masterpiece that nears perfection. It is mandatory.

I owned this album in the year when it was released and it was on a tape. I was listening it every day on my walkman. Good times :) i can't tell that I love this album, that's past. I bought this album for good memories and great melody that this album has.
