Rating: 6 After having stumbled across the music video for "Megalomaniac" on YouTube I got really interested in listening to the whole debut album by Porta Nigra simply because the song was so surprisingly great. What I especially like about it is the depressive tone mainly created by the high pitched wailings of the vocalist together with the incredibly catchy chorus.

Unfortunately though, now that I have listened to the full album a few times, I can't help but feel disappointed. Aside from the previously mentioned song as well as the gitar play, there was not a lot that felt engaging or memorable about it. It is such a pity since it is evident that the band is able to create some really intriguing music at times when everything works but sadly that occurs way too seldom on Fin de Siècle.
