Guest review by

You may be asking "What is the point of this review for Lake Of Sorrow now, when everybody has already heard of them, or because so many other different, or similar, music exists?" I'd say, because this album in particular, needs more attention on Metal Storm. While there are still many active Gothic bands out there, I believe there are rarely albums which come close to this one.

Rating: 10 One of the best (symphonic gothic) albums I've ever heard. An ultimate masterpiece.

  Another Gothic Metal diamond.
Too bad albums like this do not come out nowadays.

Rating: 9 Magical record. Maybe the best violin work by Pete Johansen too.

Magical record. Maybe the best violin work by Pete Johansen too.

Usually there aren't many albums like this one which I've heard about 8 years ago and still I can enjoy it the same.
