3 stars Green Carnation have enriched the progressive extreme metal almost to the equal level as "In the woods..." but were less influential and original at their time.

Their first album is the only one that bears some resemblance to their format period as "In the woods" with doomy and remote black metal echoes. All vocals are clean and the male ones do not display much range and emotions however, the female ones are shining while also being mournful.

Compositions are quite epic with unusual development, some acoustic parts thrown in and heaviness peaking with guitar/bass and fast drumming but still far away from being raw. This is a sophisticated avantgarde doom metal with some progressive traces and well worth exploring as the initial output of the band.

Fantastic gloomy atmosphere will not discourage you from enjoying the open mind by the band.
