Staff review by

Yearning is a Finnish gothic metal band that has not much to do with the gothic scene of this country. Maybe it is due to the personnality of Juhani Palomaki, who once more wrote the entire album, but Yearning sounds like Yearning, and that's that. Releasing a better album than the grandiloquent Frore Meadow seemed impossible, but here Evershade almost reaches perfection.
