"There can be no return from this, I envy the dead."

The italian doom metal act Void Of Silence hail once again with a new effort, The Grave Of Civilization. A few years have passed since the monumental Human Antithesis saw the light of day and their fourth full-length was more than welcome after all this time, being the sound sequel of its predecessor one could say. Alan Nemtheanga is no longer behind the microphone and this role was given to Brooke Johnson and to tell the truth, he succeeds both in terms of interpretation and feeling.

Rating: 10 Absolutely amazing... it seems I've found a new favourite band.

Rating: 10 Yeah, ever since I discovered this band and especially this album I've been revisiting it almost weekly.

And now I can finally decide it's worthy of a 10. After all, very few albums remain totally brilliant after 20-30 spins.

First of all, I think this band has a really unique sound. It's been called "apocalyptic doom metal" by quite a few people due to their themes and haunting sound/atmosphere. I would almost go as far and call this "epic doom" as it simply sounds majestic to me. I'm not that suprised you don't like it a lot because this band is obviously not for everyone. It feels catered for me, though. Everything about it is amazing.

Human Antithesis is unique too. Thanks Erik , but now I can conclude... Too many doom genres are concealed. Even this album I must prepare to dive deeper.
Maybe need >30 spins
