They're baaaaaaaaack! Put on your battle armor Ahab and Esoteric, because funeral doom titans Evoken have returned and they're ready for war with yet another excellent contribution to the overlooked style from which they come. Apparently Atra Mors is the 100th album to be released on Profound Lore Records, and a fantastic celebration of such an event it is indeed.

Must say I'm still not completely sold on this band or album. They're the definition of consistency, and I certainly appreciate how this album is both solid and dynamic. But compared to some of the other extreme doom albums this year (Faal, Profetus and Monolithe especially) there's that certain something missing. A feeling, an atmosphere, not sure what it is.

I think it's missing the creativness that those other have. This feel kinda like cookie cutter funeral doom.

It's still fantastic though, even in its lack of originality.

That was some painful Google-translated reading I must say.

Brutally wonderful and mournfully inspiring album, it I may say so. Evoken, as always, play a very well-balanced kind of funeral doom/death metal and do it quite skillfully too. One a few bands in this sub-genre manage to get my attention and Evoken is surely one of them.

This is their worst effort to date. it gets dull and boring at times. I never get scary about any album i listen to, even i must say there is no music that can change my mood. I can listen to funeral doom and being in a good mood and music dont make me feel miserable or sad. There must be something wrong with me :/
