still good after all these years,
This review is from: October Rust (Audio CD)
I'm not really into this type of music any more but felt compelled to make a comment on this album. It is a great bit of pseudo goth metal with a witty edge that never takes itself too seriously and hence can be enjoyed by hard core metal fans and the more casual listener too.
It has a very Autmnal feel - it suceeds in it attempts to be all dark and sinister - even a little 'vampish' - they play with the metal and goth genres well - never sticking to one and never becoming contrived - it is easy on the ear too with lots of harmonies and gentle chords here and there.
I'm selling a lot of my old heavy metal albums coz not really into the thrash metal thing anymore- but keeping this one coz its still a great, enjoyable bit of 'dark metal'.
tunes like 'wolf moon', 'love you to death'and 'burnt flowers fallen' have enough edge and playful artistry to it a worthwhile listen.
