      Disadvantages

      Doom, Sabbath style made in Sweden!!!

      After four albums and thirteen years of waiting, comes Mammon's War (2009, I Hate Records) as the last try from Sweden's Doom-Metal band Count Raven.
      Playing as a Trio this time with the only past member being Dan Fondelius as the mastermind of the band and having the responsibility for the guitars, keyboards and vocals. On the rhythm section we have Tommy Eriksson, playing bass and Christer Peterson on Drums.
      So the line up has changed over the years, but the music is still sounding as good as always. Melancholic atmosphere, hard and slow guitars, and Ozzy - style vocals. (Love it or Hate it)!!!
      Despite the album's long duration (68 min.), it wasn't at all tiring. Maybe cause you could find a variety in compositions and different tempos, between the songs and that kept you on. After all these years, Count Raven still sound fresh, especially so, on pieces like "Poltergeist" to the heavy and melancholic "Scream". From this kind of albums, it is impossible to miss such epic and long duration pieces, as the fantastic "A lifetime" and the melancholic "To kill a child", where the hard and slow-crawling riffs combine perfectly with the melodies, creating a beautiful result in sound.
      The heavy-epic riffs are not only limited to these pieces, but are tensed and intensified on "The entity" "Seven days", "Nashira", "To Love, wherever you are" and "Magic is" which, by the way brings to mind Candlemass.
      Lyrics are themed on Social criticism and personal experiences.
      A very good album, which I enjoyed to listen to many times!
      For all the doom-metal fans!!!

      Tip: "Scream" has been re-recorded. Previously released on the "I am vengeance soundtrack in 2001!
