In these dark ages when new labels pop out like mushrooms after the rain and release, usually without much distinction, any album that shows a little instrumental skill or a just a knack for copying old bands, it is not so often that a band coming out of nowhere takes you completely by surprise. It is even rarer that this band out of nowhere proposes an album as mature, intense and personal as the Swedish melodeath proggers of In Mourning have with “Shrouded Divine”.

Rating: 9 This album is really special for me. I'm glad some people are starting to notice this band. It was an impressive debut album, indeed.

Rating: 10 It's really similar too early Opeth, and Katatonia 1996-98.

Then why "only" 9 points your rating for it?

Rating: 10 More people need to rate this album, it definitely deserves to be on the top 200 somewhere near the top. One of the most original albums I've heard in my whole life. Captivating vocals from the growls to the cleans and everything in between. Guitar riffs that change moods from a palpable field of energy to melancholy. Not to exclude the bass and especially the drums for adding to the complexity of the masterpiece of a progressive album.

Rating: 9 Amazing album! Grind Denial instantly blew me away!

Rating: 10 Really impressive piece, I listen to it for almost 2 years and this is my choice every time I want some high quality melodeath with relaxing parts within.

I think it's kind of pathetic to let the artwork change your opinion of the music to be honest.

+1. Really don't understand how artwork can "ruin" a good album (or make a bad album good, for that matter). Kindda pretentious (or plain stupid) if you want my 2 (euro)cents......
