4 stars The winter is crawling upon us. It's getting cold and dark outside. You might have opened up a bottle of red to enjoy this cold night but something is missing. The solution to this problem is simply Mar de Grises. This Chilean progressive doom metal act is a joy to behold. This is one of the most original piece of music I have heard the last few years. They blend funeral doom and progressive music in a very tasteful way.

First of all it is an album that needs time and full attention from the listeners. The music is complex and dark. The lyrics are both in English and Spanish. Juan Escobar's vocals screaming vocals is not the stereotypical death metal vocals. His vocals represent the music in an excellent way. There is a sense of meaning in the deep vocals. The music often develops into psychedelic passages which are arranged in a brilliant way. It sets the listener deep into the message they are trying send to the listener. In these passages the clean vocals also comes forward and they suits the music very well too. Their music can range from beautiful, dark and also hopeful. There are touches of brilliance on this album without a shadow of doubt.

If you are searching for something different Mar de Grises is highly recommended. All you got to do now is to open that bottle of red and take a dive into Mar de Grises world. Even though this album may not be for everyone it is in my opinion an excellent addition to any prog music collection
