5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful doom metal 21 Aug 2007
Format:Audio CD
Although this music is very repetative, it doesn't get boring because the songs are so long (I know that may sound weird, but I'll explain why it works)... Each idea is built on gradually, and ideas such as adding and taking away instruments and changing riffs as soon as they are about to get samey keep the music interesting all the way through. The production is really thick and powerful, and even though I'm not a big fan of grunted vocals, the vocals work on this album, as they add texture making the already big sound even bigger. This music is also very melodic in places, and at times symphonic. Because of this, the lack of vocal melody isn't a problem. Some of the music on this album is quite dreamy as well... some of it reminds me of the music of science fiction films... I really like it. According to wikipedia, this style of music is known as 'funeral doom', which is apperently an extreme version of doom metal, so if you are bored with the same old standard forms of metal like thrash or power metal, I reccomend this to you... I also recomend this to doom metal fans, obviously. This is a very good album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Demos and promos 3 Feb 2008
By Christopher Girvan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is probably a disc only for Shape of Despair fans, but what a disc it is! Don't be put off by the fact that these are demo/promo recordings. Shape of Despairs brilliant quality is still there, revealed in some outstanding cuts of familiar titles, from their first three discs, with a more atmospheric 'instrumental' leaning with the vocals less prominant. Overall a highly recommended disc for admirers of this outstanding doom band as we wait for a new album beyond 2008. Seven tracks @ 63 minutes and 44 seconds

Along with Evoken, Novembers Doom, and Esoteric, Shape of Despair are one of the best progressive death/doom bands in Heavy Metal.

2.0 out of 5 stars POOR 24 Sep 2009
By S. Lescouhier - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Almost nothing valuable on this disc. Old tracks, to repetitive, boring.
For me 'sleeping murder' is the only great track, the rest is a big dissapointment if you compare with Angels of disrtess that was great doom, full of draft and deep emotions.
