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

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.

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.
