ON THORNS I LAY - ANGELDUST - BLACK LOTUS
Veteran of the early nineties, On Thorns I Lay is the kind of 'atmospheric' act whose appeal works best on fans of My Dying Bride, Tiamat and Paradise Lost. Those are also the band's primary influences. The sound is clear and the compositions rather uncomplicated and yet not so predictable. The band has put together a nice package here as well, but beware that the track listing differs from the actual order of songs on the CD.
