Below: Upon a Pale Horse

Upon a Pale Horse was recorded at Deep Blue Studios in their hometown of Nykoping, Sweden and offers, according to the good people at Metal Blade, "heavy riffs, haunting melodies and huge atmospheres." The album features several guest appearances, such as backing vocals by Sorcerer's Anders Engberg and a speech by Alan Averill of Primordial. Zeb vocals, Hedman bass, Paud guitar, Berg guitar with Doc on drums and I haven't mentioned Sneezy or Grumpy!

Below deal in doom metal which is very much a genre which I have to be in the mood for and I certainly wasn't for a while after I got this one but subsequent listens have revealed a fairly brutal, bruising, if fairly musically basic album with the odd standout track. "1000 Broken Bones" is fantastic, especially the guitars ditto "Disappearing into Nothing" which features sterling vocals from the stupidly named Zeb. The title track could have done with a little editing but this is a really solid, if not exactly laugh-a-minute stuff which, I imagine, for fans of the doom genre will be lapped up.
