Format: Audio CD
I would probally rate this album as one of my all time favourites. It was strange what drove me to get this album, as I had heard of this band and knew of the great things they had done but it also has some beautiful album artwork and I think that word is the only way you can sum up this album. We see here Death/Doom Metal with sweet, folky, rocky and progressive aspects... even though alot of bands may have done this (such as Green Carnation and Opeth) this band does it extremely well. So as I do with many albums I have reviewed I will go as full into context as I can by reviewing each track...
1.Thousand Lakes
A keyboard instrumental introduction to the album. Its a very nice way to start the album. It creates a somewhat sad and melachonic feel but it is also majestic and enchanting, may I also mention that the keyboard player is stunning on this album but this is just the beginning...
2.Into Hiding
It kicks in with a similar melody to the previous track but this time as a full band... now you hear the full sound. The vocals are vary between Death Metal style growls to operatic, clean sung styles. Nice interloping guitar appergio patterns which are used alot on this album (the lead guitarist is also amazing)
3.The Castaway
It drifts along well and has some lovely arabian/eastern touches here and there, and it ends with a massive, proggy/bluesy solo with all band memebers playing their hearts out... a truly brilliant track.
4.First Doom
Starts with a fast, pouding intro then goes into the classic Amorphis sound not much to say about this but its all good.
5.Black Winter Day
A real classic. Well known by all. Was featured in a Bam Magera film unfortuatly, but never mind that.

This album is brilliant.
It won't appeal to those who like ripping speed death metal such as Deicide. It won't appeal much to the brutal riff fan either (although, there are a few corkers on here).
It is a work of art. To understand you really have to hear it.
Some great contrasting vocal styles help to make this album an epic.
There is some very spooky keyboard work on here as well.
All of this adds to make what I have already said. A true masterpiece in every sense of the word. Calming, yet oddly deppressing (in a good way !!!)
A real gem in the doom/death world...

this is the ultimate in doom metal - a sad and endearing album that is at times stirringly haunting, beautiful and nostalgic ie. "drowned maid" and "in the beginning".
most of the album is led by an airy and flighting lead guitar that contrasts appropriately with the tight rhythm section.
a fantastic release from the finnish pioneers of innovative metal.

This Album is very melodic whilst remaining extemly heavy. Fans of Cradle of Filth and Anatheama will love it.
