this album is slow, depressing, boring, heavy, not prog at all... i love it...

The 3rd and the mortal along with The Gathering and Theatre Of Tragedy defined atmospheric doom/death metal for the 90's... the difference was that this band achieved to release the best release of this genre with the first attempt and set its standards very early...

It is a known fact that North-Central European groups are the ony ones that can reproduce this kind of mood and that's obviously due to the weather...what ever the reason is, Tears Laid in Earth with its slow doom riffs, its melodic synths, and the contradict ethereal female vocals grabs your heart and travels it to the frozen north, in the woods...

This isn't an album to be played whenever... it is grim, sad, pessimistic, it needs time but will reward you, that's for sure...
