01. Misery 24/7
Vocals: Petri Eskelinen
RAPTURE: "Silent Stage"
review by Salvo "Lovedeath" Russo____
album for this band from
are good melodic song that can remind of Paradise Lost
and Katatonia, even if Rapture are able to create a personal
style that is the result of all these influences.
the whole I admit that this album is ready to be appreciated from all
those who like a depressive vision of the music, though I'm sure that
this band both for technique qualities and intensity can give more
first track "Misery 24-7" is pure melodic death sung
with growl vocals and a typical arrangement that takes inspiration
from old Paradise Lost era Icon!!!!Great song, like the next one
"The past nightmares" that shows me the delicate part of the
this band's soul. A particular kind of sadness full of passion and
wildness....There's also a touch of doom.
am complete" seems a song created by Paradise Lost and Katataonia
together! A good riff guitar and a cool refrain, even if the song gets
an easy structure and wholly it's nothing new.
is able to create sad riff guitars and the next "For the ghosts
of our time" is a good example of gothic-doom, even if I can't
but notice Paradise Lost shadows....
Chrysalis stage" is another very good song in which growl vocals
underline the pure sensitiveness of this melancholic song!!!! Pure
melancholy, in which I notice how the band is able to play the songs
from the deep of the soul!
new for the next "Dreaming of oblivion" that follows the same
groove. ..but without the same intensity. In my opinion one of the best
song of this album is "The times we bled" that seems to
be taken from Undressed momento (Klimt1918). What a great song!!!!
is a very gothic song in which doom guitars are mixed to sad vocals
and a cool involving refrain.
"Cold on my side" is another usual melodic-death song, with a typical structure, even if the band is able to give a personal touch, anyway for me this is the less inspired song of the album.
that is an instrumental track closes the album with a doom approach
that can remind of Shape of Despair in the compositive
the whole a good album that nothing changes in the goth-doom scene ,
but I'm sure that all the fans of all bands mentioned in this review,
will appreciate this album.
