Staff review by

I should start to say that this is one of my all time favourite, no other album have touch me so emotionally deep as this one, no other album has given me so much creepy feelings. Lake of Tears was formed out of the ashes of Death Metal acts "Carnal Eruption" (Daniel Brennare, Jonas Eriksson and Mikael Larsson) and "Forsaken Grief" (Johan Oudhuis).They released their first demo, "Demo 1" in 1993 and got a record deal with the label "Black Mark Productions", a 5-album deal.

  I would say this is best Lake of Tears album, I know upcoming, this still has old school doom sound, less gothic and great songs, great lyrics and interpretation, really great album, I like this more then 1th one, but both are good, but somehow this (even I dont say this is emotional) album, but still this old school atmosphere do the trick, I love this one

Rating: 9 Great album. I agree, their best (with FA closely following).
Highlights: Raven land, Headstones, and of course the ingenious The path of the Gods
