Crossbreed - The Stamp Of Hate (Independent) - Back
Spain is the home of the doom metal band 7th Moon. They sometimes sound like The Gathering or My Dying Bride with the singer from The Gathering. The guitars stay good and heavy, very reminiscent of early My Dying Bride. There are also some similarities with early Anathema and Theatre of Tragedy, with the addition of Sonia's angelic voice. "Alter Alma" is the title of their latest CD and it has seven tracks and nearly forty minutes of dark and powerful music. The whole disk is written well and the first couple tracks "Love, Sweet Death" and "The Eternal Fight" are my favorites tracks. 7th Moon also uses calming melodic parts to contrast the heaviness and Sonia uses her death metal growl to change the tone of a song even more. This is another positive album to add to Icarus' repertoire.
