Rating in words: pleasant, seductive, well-structured.

The Man-Eating Tree, what a symbolic band name. The band has grown so much over the course of one year, effectively branching* into new territories while at the same time staying firmly rooted** in the same ground - the product of this wonderful change is one of the best gothic metal albums of 2011. Their debut, Vine, an album nominated for the Metal Storm Awards as well, came across as a bit pedestrian to me. It had the same balance of wonderfully gentle and intricate elements, but failed to produce memorable tunes that would stick to my head. Harvest is an enormous improvement in terms of songwriting - it is a lot catchier and more cohesive. While Vine relied on a slightly brooding atmosphere, Harvest is all about song development and progression, which makes it a lot better in my eyes.

  Oh my yes, I've heard this album thoroughly on few occasions. That was when I was engaged in work assignment with the band. This album is significantly better on all aspects than the debut.

Oh, that would indeed be nice, they're such talents, but the songwriting was a bit bland on the debut.

Well, you should go to the gothic folks for clarification, but I believe this is closer to gothic metal. For Suomi metal, try Charon and Sentenced, they'll give you a better idea of how the genre sounds like.

Rating: 9 Ahhh, such a great album, especially with songs like "Armed" I just hits that precise mark that balances melancholy and forceful inspiration that speaks to me every time!

Rating: 7 This album have nice songs, well-balanced music, emotionals melodies, but it couldn't impressed me, and I must to say that vocals unenchanted me, well just for the accent
