Staff review by

With "Sleep Now, Quiet Forest", the American female singer Laurie Ann Haus is finally back in front of the Metal scene. Her last EP with Todesbonden was out in 2004 and this is only four years later that the band finally releases their first official album. One more time, Laurie will invite you in a magical journey in the world of Gothic music and definitely you'll not have the right to decline it.

Rating: 5 A painfully boring and bland album. Can't enjoy this one even slightly.
