The first time I heard this band, I was blown away. They do not have nearly the following they deserve. The Justice of Suffering and Hope are key tracks on this album, if a little lengthy!
I also highly recommend their new album New Moon (no relation to the Twilight books!) particularly the title track.

It's weird that STS change their logo with every album ( branding-tastic ! ) as well as managing to redifine the most intense doom riffs this side of the bleakest galaxy. This album feels so much more 'fuller' than Ghosts.....where for me the vocals tended to go off on the lame side a bit too often - not that this album does'nt have texture and subtelty a plenty, it just comes across as a very embracing and colossal monster of a sound.
Overall - an absolute stonker of a doom genre defining release !

To keep this review short, it might be summarised in one word, Brilliance. By it, loan it, copy it, steel it, do whatever it takes to get your hands on this fantastic album. Genredefining album from this finnish band.
