      Compilation (2004).

      Lamented Souls' discography is still in a somewhat embryonic state, having only a couple of demo releases and this compilation of material to show for it. This collection of songs recorded up to 1997 is a fine display of traditional doom metal with a Norwegian twist, the most impressive element being the booming vocals of Simen Hestnaes that don't seek to mirror any of the doom giants. The rest of the band fluctuates slightly as the songs delve further into the past, but the sound quality is relatively consistent even when the material is more or less a demo.

      The most contentious issue here is the repetition of certain songs ('Hybris,' 'Var,' 'Sprukken Maske' and 'Eternal Existence'), which is only useful for those interested in analysing the band's progress over a couple of years, which isn't going to be all that many people. These are particularly good songs, 'Hybris' being a bit more rocking while 'Var' goes for slow and elegiac even by doom metal standards, but the others are fine examples of the genre as well, even deviating with 'Demon Baby' into the realm of stoner rock.
