5.0 out of 5 stars A Beautifully Crafted Album !!, 21 April 2006
This review is from: The Second Wave (Audio CD)
Whispering Dark Metal !!... Is how I would describe this album ..Khoma have certainly have struck a chord with Roadrunner Records here, This Swedish band have produced one of the best albums I have heard this side of 2006..it takes you somewhat into a journey of fear and relief and they portray their beliefs perfectly through every note they sing, of who they are, what they believe in and what they stand for, I would describe Khoma as a mix between Tool and Radiohead with a bit of Muse thrown in, so fans of this type of music ,Definitely pick yourself up a copy.

The album begins with "The Guillotine" this in my opinion sets the mood for the whole album. Like the beginning of a story almost similar to an Indian drum call it then kicks in to the mellowing and haunting lyrics. The second track "Stop making speeches" .again with the familiar thundering drum beats, perfectly balanced vocals and guitar riffs this is one of my fave tracks from the album. By the third track "If All Else Fails" I find myself somehow falling into trance from the awesome guitar riffs and powerful lyrics

With"Medea" my second fave track from the album, I have never heard music played with so much passion and sincerity, The piano that announces "Hyenas" is so calming and mellow, such soothing powerful lyrics, guitar solos, the continuous steady beat of the drum.. This is where I am totally lost in the album now,

Khoma proves that this is the most amazing album you will ever hear, Towards the last few songs "Asleeps" "Last Call" "1909 08 04" and "One of Us Must Hang" with its closing 2 minute instrumental it is like a sad ending to this great album. Which leaves you wanting more .Its a change from the metal music Roadrunner portrays normally but they certainly know a good thing when they hear it..

10/10
