      Count Raven's second album (1992).

      The most striking aspect of this obviously Black Sabbath-influenced doom metal band at this point is just how precisely singer Dan Fondelius imitates Ozzy Osbourne's nasal tones. He never quite convinces that he's the mad Brummie, but he gives it his best shot by mimicking both Ozzy's low and high ranges, and I really don't see the point. It's not as if Count Raven were aiming to be a Sabbath tribute band, their sound being more rooted in the Swedish doom scene, so the imitation is distractingly pointless throughout.

      Aside from the strange vocal issue, this album is an improvement over its predecessor in terms of interest, atmosphere and even tone, possessing a more satisfyingly crunchy sound to the guitars and two substantial dabbles in keyboards from the multi-talented Fondelius (who also supplies the guitar) in the form of 'Northern Lights' and 'Europa.' They're both different enough to justify their mutual existence, the first being more of a creepy black metal style interlude and the second a more optimistic, new age piece, but they still sound out of place, merely for being so starkly different to the dirgey doom metal that dominates the rest of the disc.
