POISONBLACK - LUST STAINED DESPAIR - CENTURY MEDIA  
The second release by, the ex-Sentenced vocalist led, Poisonblack starts with a European-tinged Metallica wannabe Nothing Else Remains. The quintet is probably really keen to rip off Enter Sandman with even Ville Laihiala sounding like James Hetfield. Hollow Be My Name takes the melancholic In Flames, Evergrey sound and adds some Sentenced to it. The Darkest Lie is too much like the '80s European pop rock sounds of U2 and is mixed with some Type O Negative in its darker moments. Any metal sections are at best reminiscent of Insomnium. Rush starts with a slightly more promising heavier riff with shades of In Flames again. Nail features what sounds suspiciously too close to the classic Phantasm movie music, unfortunately though, no sign of the Tall Man here. Raivotar and Soul In Flames are in much the same Swedish/Finnish almost metal mould. Pain Becomes Me is a dark ballad, which is not catchy enough to really affect the listener. Never Enough, Love Controlled Despair and The Living Dead don’t present any surprises or outstanding moments either and the stain remains on the band for this below average release. - Anna Tergel
