Death Thy Lover
Sinister And Sweet indeed!
Thought these Swedish doom legends were done with recording. Glad they're not, though, because this four-song EP is more vibrant and enjoyable than their last LP, Psalms For The Dead. More variety in riffs, melody and most importantly, tempo. (See the title track.) I was never crazy about vocalist Mats Leven's work with Yngwie, and thought his voice too raspy for this band, but he works surprisingly well here. Tasty guitar leads from Lars Johansson, as always! Closing instrumental "The Goose" starts off well, but drags a bit. The rest, however, is a surprisingly tasty little smackerel of doom, especially the aptly named "Sinister And Sweet."
