Staff review by

Fresh from the Swedish school of doom come Below, a band whose simple name reflects their simple approach to the genre.

Guest review by

Below is a triumphant re-imagining of the traditional and root elements of doom. What it lacks in originality, it wholly makes up for with quality in both songwriting and production.

Rating: 8 Good epic doom. IMO the mid part of the album, tracks 3-5 to be precise, is weaker than rest of the songs and seems filler to me. Nevertheless, a worthy album that definitely holds its interest for many listens.
