Staff review by
Four songs for 34 minutes… How surprising, Forsaken plays doom metal, and unusually comes from Malta. I don't know the quality of the rest of the Maltese scene, but if it is half good as this one, watch out! And yet, Forsaken has nothing really original, they play basic heavy-doom in the vein of Candlemass, with guitars tuned in bass tones, riffs as slow as possible, and as heavy as they can be (heavier would be either Black Sabbath or funeral doom), wretched lyrics dealing with the esoteric side of religion... but all this is made with such enthusiasm, such mastery, that it becomes a very nice surprise.
