Krux, doom metal wonder band from Sweden, followed up their sophomore release, simply named II, with III - He Who Sleeps Among The Stars. One thing is for sure, these Swedes sure don't hasten to get their spawns into the world; III - He Who Sleeps Among The Stars came out 5 years after their previous effort. This is reflected in the music. All of Krux's LPs are mature works, being distinct from each other, while still preserving the "Kruxness". This time around, we are treated to a party decidedly less doom than before: this is heavy metal, which spirals around a doom core.

Rating: 7 After the first four and a half tracks the essence of this album disappears somewhere. Good stuff overall.

I agree.
II is way better if you haven't listened to it

I must agree to a certain extent. The last two tracks aren't too good. The best moments for me were 'Small Deadly Curses' and the beginning of 'Prince Azaar...'.
