EVADNE – THE SHORTEST WAY
It is odd for a funeral doom metal band to call its disc ‘The Shortest Way,’ but here it is. The disc is comprised of eight tracks in 60 minutes and features all the hallmarks of the sub-genre. A gloomy deep growl lies over drawn out riffs, heavy desperation and sentimental passages of doom. The group compares itself to Skepticism, but frankly any of the forerunners of the genre would do. Keyboards, female vocals and sound effects of nature also make an appearance; however, none of this leads to a deterioration of the band’s delivery. No Place For Hope, which begins the disc, is quite heavy. All I Will Leave Behind is over ten minutes long and the band’s most comprehensive song – and yes the female vocals are on the track. The spoken word segment is semi-dismal and semi-freaky. The Wanderer is shorter and has a guitar solo straight out of Pink Floyd’s playbook. Gloomy Garden, which ends this CD has the clean vocals before switching back to heavy growls reminiscent of the Amorphis debut.
