      Quality gothic doom

      'Days of Nothing', the first full length by Italian band 'The Foreshadowing' is an album of slow, brooding gothic doom that merges the slick, sorrowful guitars of 'Gods of the Sun'-era My Dying Bride with the melancholy gothic rock of latter-day Katatonia. The songs are accompanied by piano, keyboards and sweeping synths, whilst the vocals are in the form of deep, morose crooning. These, like music itself, are excellently executed, and whilst not entirely dissimmilar to the clean singing by My Dying Bride's Aaron Stainthorpe they manage to retain an identity of their own.

      The production is very clean and polished, and the tracks manage to remain varied whilst barely ever straying beyond their remit of unhurried, gloomy riffing and bittersweet clean chords. Its quite poppy as far as doom goes, but whilst deviod of the bursts of furious rage and tortured growls that My Dying Bride work into their sound, 'Days of Nothing' does occasionally burst into urgent, uptempo riffing, eg on the track 'The Fall'. Elsewhere there are low-key sections with Cure-esque guitars and subdued, gently drifting vocals.

      Whilst nothing stunningly original, 'Days of Nothing' is a varied, moving and well constructed piece of gothic doom that will appeal to fans of My Dying Bride, Katatonia, Swallow The Sun and Before The Rain.
