3 stars The final album by this Norwegian combo before Gunder Audun Dragsten left the music industry and now have a normal job with two point four children, mortgage and five weeks annual holidays. Or something like that. I have always respected Audun Dragsten and I hope he one day will return to the music world for a couple of more albums or more. And if you read this, Gunder; I would like an interview so please get in touch. The interview I was supposed to do 20 years ago before my editor back then vetoed the idea.

Godsend started as a band somewhere between funeral doom and doom metal before Godsend became a band on their second album. On this album, their third, the band got sacked and Godsend returned back to a mix of funeral doom and doom metal. Well, more funeral doom in fact. The tempo is slow and the guitars is downtuned down to pure sludge. The vocals too is downtuned to almost monk chants.

This is not an easy-listening album. But the overall quality shines through and I find this album guilty of being a good album. It is recommended to all those of you (yeah, you in the back of the room) who likes dark doom metal.

3 stars
