Format: Audio CD
Have been a metal fan on and off for 30 years, but admittedly there are big gaps in my knowledge. So when writers talk about Mercyful Fate, I recognise the name as a classic band but have not a clue what that means. So I went in with fresh ears with this one. Been listening to it non stop since I bought it. It's winning plaudits in the metal press but to my ears there is a hefty slab of Goth in the sound. And the singer at times is a dead ringer for Ian McCulloch. Some great riffs and choruses, I just love this album. It sounds old school but with a modern edge. Pallid Hands edges it as top track.

In Solitude's third release a stunner 13 Oct. 2013
By Scott Hedegard - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
In Solitude, the Swedish band that started out as an Iron Maiden/Mercyful Fate style metal band, has consistently grown over their three albums, and the follow-up to the great "The World The Flesh The Devil" is a great leap forward in helping them establish their own identity.
The band, a bunch of young bucks in their early 20's is an ambitious one, trimming away most of their influences and bringing an album that still rocks plenty, with scorching lead work and plenty of fast tempos, but also lays down a heavy dose of dark atmospheric sound, with the vocals of Pelle Ahman more passioned than ever.
Ahman apparently spent time in the north woods of Swedish to get inspired for the new album, and if his dark and Satanical references are any indicator, those woods are not a place I want to go. In Solitude can be compared to Ghost B.C. but are not as kitschy or obvious as their compatriots. Where a keyboard laden Ghost B.C. are as much camp as they are anything, In Solitude seem to take their game deadly seriously. The title track is haunting and disturbing, and the closer "Inmost Nigredo" is a moody classic, far removed from their earlier stuff.
Those who still want some of the early IS sound will not be disappointed, and those hoping the band doesn't stay on the derivative road will be greatly pleased at their progress. It's one of metal's best of the year, hands down.

The New "IN" Band From Sweden 11 Oct. 2013
By Scott Rosenbluth - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This is better than The World, The Flesh, The Devil. And there was nothing wrong with that record at all. This takes despair and darkness and pairs it with evocative and dangerous Heavy Metal with extremely deep emotional wells. Parts Danzig/Samhain, NWOBHM, Post-Punk, and that doesn't even do it justice because I don't have a record in my collection that sounds like this! The elements are stripped down and just ooze authenticity and creative expression. The heaviness is always pure and sometimes benched in favor of a good riff or set of riffs. Basically this just blows most faux metal bands out of the water with sheer creative, destructive force. Basically from this point on, this will be the only band from Sweden with the first name of "In" that I'll care about!

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This is something original,yet old school.It should be consumed in it's entirety.This sounds like the color black,doomy and evil.I am seldom moved to write a review,but anyone with an interest in metal should hear this.The highlights for me are,tracks 1,3 and 6-8.I would give it 666 stars,were that an option.In a word,WOW.

A Bizzare Masterpiece! 9 Oct. 2013
By JS - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
What was vocalist Pelle Ahman channeling when he was recording this album I don't know but it worked. The music, at times, is spare and always atmospheric. Haunting melodies & riffs permeate to the very end. The lyrics are twistedly poetic where death is the prevalent theme , which is quite befitting of the music. You're pulled into a visual landscape of desolate forests in late fall where cold, sunless days go on seemingly without end.

Every song could easily stand alone but I feel it's best to experience this collection from start to finish. But even with that said, my favorites are Lavender, Sister & Inmost Nigredo. Especially Lavender...can't get enough of that one.

There are going to be some people that will immediately want to put a label on this music and ultimately compare it other bands...yeah, good luck with that! I've never heard anything like this and that's why I can't recommend this enough. But PLEASE buy the actual cd! $%&@ the digital version...with the cd you get a booklet that has artwork by Pelle Ahman that goes with the music so well.

Dark/Passionate/Brooding/Beautiful.... Heavy. 3 Oct. 2013
By Tongue Druid - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
"Sister" is a plunge into dark wonder and madness, beauty and grotesque, the human condition with the welcomed issue of a little bleeding stigmata.... Think: Bauhaus -meets Black Sabbath -meets Samhain's "November Coming Fire" -meets Sub Pop era Soundgarden -meets Slayer's "Hell Awaits" (my best shot at similes there). Pelle's vocals are quite gymnastic and passionately abrasive throughout, you can really hear him throwing his whole body into the performance. Plenty of catchy and interesting guitar riffs, some nasty lead flourishes pepper the songs to keep my "metal" taste in tune, while the drummer and bassist really churn through with a tasteful, groovy, & weighty drive. This album seems more broad-spaced and passionate than most any genre of metal, especially nowadays.
One of the top albums of the year; Definitely a welcomed surprise to my ears, and hopefully to yours too...
