SHADOWS OF SUNSET - REFLECTION FROM AFAR - FADELESS
The long-awaited follow-up release to Vomitory's debut album by Netherland's Fadeless Records comes in the shape of this Finnish band's MCD. Formerly going under the Imposed Silence name and specializing in death metal, the underground foursome now composes songs in the heavy/speed metal vein, an approach which is certainly toned down from its earlier days. What, however, distinguishes the band from sounding 'mainstream' heavy metal is the larynx of its frontman who exudes a throaty and gruff voice. Shadows Of Sunset produces reasonable well-played metal spiced with both aggression and melody and if one is looking at a reason to purchase this disc then this description might suffice. - Ali "The Metallian"
