yea, from other album talks and ratings i'm going to trust you on this one..


If you want a recommendation for their later period: Viva Emptiness and Discouraged Ones. Specially the first. Just expect a totally different band.

thanks, lol, but somehow when i get to searching for albums, i always end up forgetting these guys. I liked rain without end- october tide and yet i've read its katatonia-esque and that early katatonia is much better. This month i MUST check them though.


If you like Rain Without End then I'm pretty sure you'll like Brave Murder Day.... Also, I have to say that Discouraged Ones is basically Brave Murder Day but with clean vocals. The guitar tune and riffs are in the same vein, just shorter songs. So maybe I will recommend you to check out Discouraged Ones right after you listen to Brave Murder Day... After all, BMD also has clean vocals here and there.

I think Rain Without End is great, but it's definitely not as awesome as Brave Murder Day. I never listened to Discouraged Ones, but if what you say is true then I think I'll enjoy that album too. If it's like Viva Emptiness I don't think I'll enjoy it.

The only thing Discouraged Ones has in common with Viva Emptiness is clean vocals tbh...

I've lost interest in those listings since it became obvious there are jerks out there who create bogus accounts just to vote up their preferred album and vote down others. It distorts the figures badly.

well, yeah I agree... I've noticed the ratings of previous years were much better and authentic... in the last 2 years or so things have gone haywire. MetalStorm team should do something about that :/ sucks out all the thrill and fun of following stats.

Hopefully they'll do something about it. I alerted some staff to some of the bogus accounts that were created just before New Year's Eve.

I agree. And I don't even think it's that hard to remove the users who abuse votes. Just look for the users that rate albums of the same year 1's and 10's.

I lack the permitions to delete votes but on behalf of those who do I'd like to say that while it's not hard, it's fucking tedious and not only that... It's waaaaay down on the priority list specially NOW with the Awards coming up. By this time of the year stuff like reviews and smaller things like votes and moderation end up getting lowered a lot because there's a shitload of stuff to do for the awards.

So basically: Patience and stuff.

That's pretty understandable...

looking forward to the awards, I hope they won't get polluted

.... Since Saturnus draws mostly older crowds that love life and party hard whereas kataonia has loads of those emo teens at their gigs

HOLY CRAP - apparently I lived under a rock. Dear god do I like this album - well, not each and every song, but the majority for sure. And after listening to the whole thing I can see the point with the "older crowds" compared to the Katatonia audience

Rating: 3 I donot know why peopl rate them 10 if we compare this album to older 1 this album is a fucking bad album

Rating: 9 Nice, another classic album from these Gothic-Doom masters. A Lonely Passage is my favourite one
IronArkadius666 - 22.05.2013 at 19:08  
Rating: 10 Wow, being introduced to Saturnus through VDTD, which I understand is a classic of theirs, I thought that this album would probably be fairly disappointing (especially since 2012 seems to enjoy following that trend) However after about 5 listens of this I struck gold... just wow...

Fav song has to be either Wind Torn, Lonely Passage or Between, the cello part in Between just send shivers down my spine...
If i was feeling suicidal, I would be afraid to listen to this as its beautiful melancholy would probably remove all doubt such an action.

Rating: 10 Forest of insomenia ... one of the greatest metal records ever!
Kraterr - 25.05.2014 at 19:39  
  I love this album, I really do.. But I can't give it a 10, not in a million years. 'A Fathers Providence' makes me cringe, to see how far Saturnus has fallen, worst song of the album for sure, that chorus is a huge disappointment considering the caliber of death doom present in this record.

Also I get bored during the latter half of ' Call Of The Raven Moon '... 7 minutes is too long for this song, should have been cut to half at least.

Highlights: Litany Of Rain, Wind Torn, Forest Of Insomnia, Between. These four songs right here, yeah these four, are some of the best melodic death doom songs ever, the riffs, oh my god the riffs..

Rating: 10 Greatness has often generated divided opinions, but no matter.

Paradise Belongs To You was ahead of its time, and this one only builds on its legacy as an eternal classic!

This album is simply indescribable - its exquisite soul will live in me until death.
