Staff review by

Doom:VS is the one-man project of Johan Ericson, one of the starting members of Draconian, playing the drums for them during the 1994-2002 era, while afterwards he switched to the guitars leaving the drumming to Jerry Torstensson. Having formed Doom:VS, he started moving towards his very own path, a path that could lead only to one dirrection, the dark side of doom metal, proving that he's really gifted and has a lot to offer to the scene. Something that proves me correct is the fact that he dealt with everything having to do with the debut album of this fabulous project, from the cover to the production and all the instrumentation.

Guest review by

Aeternum Vale is Latin for farewell forever, how fitting for the crushing debut of Doom:Vs

The line I would use to sum up this album to its fullest is an excerpt from the song "Oblivion Upon Us": "I myself have built the cross I wear", and boy does that line describe it. The cover art depicts a desolated earth with only one tree just fading into view, it creates a sense of hopelessness before you even start listening to the album.
