1 stars In order to avoid repeating myself, you might need to read my Lemuria review first.


So you did? Fine, then I will try to explain why this album is even worse. Where Lemuria still started out fine, Sirius B does not have one song that rises above the abject mediocrity of all other opera-metal and gothic metal acts that were around in the first decade of the 21st century.

Next to repetitive metal riffs of Lemuria, this album also features some of the most formulaic goth clichés you can imagine. I don't want to go through all songs, but the tepid hard rock and empty pathos of Blood of Kingu gets on my nerves in less then a minute. The opening bars from Son of the Sun are even worse. This Sisters of Mercy-nicked riff has been heard on hundred other songs already. It's an insult to any music lover: stealing something that has been stolen and used and re-used hundreds times before and assuming we're so dumb that we won't even notice.

The rest of the songs are so tedious and unremarkable that I get lulled to sleep before they are over. For me this must be one of the worst albums ever to reach such a huge audience.
