3 stars Swedish act BURNING SAVIOURS was formed back in 2003, and until their initial break-up in 2008 they released three full length productions that brought them quite a lot of positive attention amongst fans of retro-oriented doom metal.

Two years after they called it a day the band decided that they wanted to have a second go, and one year later the first results of the reunion was released as the single "Förbannelsen", with the B-side "Midnight" as the supporting track. Both pieces see the band in fine form, on this occasion honing in on an early 70's sound in terms of style, mix and performance. Shades of Black Sabbath is a constant presence, at least in compositional construction, but Burning Saviours have opted for a lighter toned, less compact variety of this approach on this occasion. The title track is the hardest hitting of the pair, sporting talk-like vocals on top of staccato standalone riffs in the verse parts and a blues-flavoured, mid-paced expression when the instruments are given free reign. Supporting track Midnight opens and ends as a slower, careful ballad oriented piece, with slow wandering guitars in a basic arrangement for the vocal passages, broken up by a pacier, lighter toned guitar solo that slots in perfectly for a creation of this ilk.

All in all a fine comeback for this Swedish outfit, with fans of early days Black Sabbath as a possible target audience. And if this single is checked out and deemed interesting, you might want to check out the second comeback single of this band too: "The Offering", which was released by Night Tripper Records in 2012.
