This is undoubtedly one of the top 5 releases of 2007. And even though someone might disagree, probably PL's best album so far.
It's very dark, doomy. No messing around, straight to the point ... pure metal. I was just looking at the track listing and wanted to pick the stand out tracks. But there are no stand out tracks on this album. It's brilliant from the first note to the very last one.
If there is something like band's identity, for me it was album Draconian times for PL. Now, that album always had a weakness for me and that were the vocals. In comparison to that album, In Requiem hasn't got any weakness. Nick Holmes is fantastic, absolutely faultless.
It's pointless to analyze In Requiem. You'll buy it anyway and you'll find out for yourself. You certainly won't regret.
