||Whenever I hear new music from Portugal it
never seems to disappoint me. Divine
Lust continues the trend of excellent metal bands from their country.
The band is a little like Mental Home (especially the guitars), but
more of a mix between My Dying Bride and Fall of the Leafe. I’m
sure there are probably some influences from Moonspell as well. I
was more then pleased to hear the combination of doom crossed with
gothic and traditional heavy metal. The songs came out well; it was
hard to pick my favorite songs. “Alone In the Dark,” “Morrigan,”
and “Embrace” came out on top. They don’t seem to
waste notes, every note has its place, this makes this album flow
smoothly. In the song “Embrace” they use an electric violin
for the leads, which adds an amazing amount of feeling to the song.
Ten tracks and almost fifty-five minutes encompass this masterful
CD. Not to mention. They even threw in a music video for the song
“Morrigan” for your computer.
