A certain bloke that lurks around these premises said some time ago that nothing can make him lose interest faster than the mere reference of the term "gothic metal". I'd like to hear what he has to say about this one.

Talk about an album that really surprised me this year! Idle Hands managed with Mana to create an album that (while not bringing anything particularly new) feels fresh and inspired. There are two records so far this year that I would score higher than this one. However, I find myself listening to this album way more often. Why? Let me explain.

Good album, good debut, I think it's a good mix of heavy metal with gothic rock and with a minimal touch of black metal sound, a totally recommended album.

This album is going to be on several year-end lists of people with good taste in music.

Been listening to a bunch of albums that were overall mostly disappointing the last few weeks. This one though, was one that immediately clicked with me, hence why I recommended it in the recommendations thread. It simply deserves some attention.

And the more I listen to this album, the more I like it. I really like the vocals and the music itself has a nice atmosphere and vibe to it thanks to the gothic touches.

Excellent debut album and I'm looking forward to their work in the future.

Good stuff, nice guitar work with massive hooks and melodies with some gothic mopiness thrown into the mix.

This could really be fun for me if it just was another vocalist.

Oh I bet it's great for a lot of people!
It's a very personal thing for me. But I just straight up don't like the guy's voice. Can't even really say what it is specifically.
Not throwing shade at ppl who like the album, more power to you!

This and Numenorean's Adore have some of the most memorable songs of the year so far.

Metal version of The Damned! The singer is really similar to Dave Vanian...

On paper that should be a winning combination for me but I'm just not feeling this album. I've tried playing it several times but always get 2 or 3 songs in and have to turn it off. With these kind of bands, the artist needs to sound sincere but all I'm hearing and seeing is style over substance.. Shame because it's had amazing reviews and lots of recommendations.

I think exactly the same.
Average songs done with a good but not sincere style.
Not a bad album but really forgettable...
