I wonder if anybody's ever gonna beat Shape Of Despair as far as heaviness and slowness are concerned... Seldom have I heard something slower than Angels Of Distress. Slower than that would be going backwards. Shape Of Despair or the art of playing riffs that last four minutes each... Now I know what funeral doom is supposed to be.

Rating: 8 Great album, but Shades Of... is way better than this one. So it's actually quite a disappointment seeing as I expected so much from this album (as it's hailed as their best album).
