Staff review by

No need to present one more time Longing For Dawn, especially if you like Doom Metal. The really good band from Canada is back this year with their 3rd album, "Between Elation And Despair", a pure concentration of melancholic Funeral Doom Death. I've been into this band since its first release released in 2005 but the more they release album, the better they are. "Between Elation And Despair" is without any doubt their best release and the confirmation that we're just in front of a great band.

Rating: 8 A really intense piece of funeral/death doom. Love this crushing lead guitar sound (definitely the highest point here). Really enjoy that I found this.

  I don't listen to a lot of funeral doom anymore but Longing For Dawn is still one of those names I pay attention to - I've yet to be disappointed with them.
