Hailing from Samara Russia, Wine From Tears debuted their first album Through The Eyes of a Mad (a mad what? I have no clue…) back in 2009 via Bad Mood Man Music.

After the intro concluded, I knew immediately what I was in for, and I wasn't disappointed. I have to admit, I'm a huge sucker for this sound. Wine From Tears plays a melodic death/doom metal with a melancholic mood that never lets up (think early Katatonia, early Paradise Lost, Saturnus, Officium Triste, etc). The melodic riffs are the main event here, but they are interspersed with some heavier crunchy sounding riffs as well. Occasionally the tempo picks up and things start to sound more aggressive, although this never seems to draw away from that melancholic mood. I really like the keyboards too, because they don't overshadow the melodic guitar riffs. Instead they supplement them nicely. The bass and drums don't really stick out, and they aren't really anything special. The vocals are mostly well done growls with a few clean vocals thrown into the mix (there are even female vocals on "Feeding the Angel").

This is an incredibly awesome debut album from a very promising Russian Band. It's melodic, it's aggresive, it isn't original, some may say, but all in all, i Love it.

For me 3rd best album of 2009 after Epica - The divine Conspiracy and Trail of Tears - Bloodstained Endurance.

I agree, it is an awesome debut indeed. I think you meant Design Your Universe by Epica.

But anyways, it is definitely one of the best debuts in 2009.

It's the best melancholic album I've ever heard.

All the tracks are amazing.

Is the vocal the same vocal of Saturnus? cause they have the same voice.
