Em Sinfonia

In Mourning's Symphony (Martyr Music Group)
Enslain Magazine Issue #6
Order Issue #6!  This review included. "In Mourning's Symphony" is the debut of Brian Griffin's (Broken Hope) newest endeavor. At first listen, I must admit, I wasn't very impressed. The depressing and slow rhythms just seemed to drag on. It took me a short while to finally appreciate their musical genius. This album is not going to be enjoyed by someone expecting brutality or aggression. It will be enjoyed by one with a love of the mastery of sound, and the ability to create melodic moody soundscapes. The violin adds such a dramatic touch to the already saddened sound. The somber rhythms of this release can be quite addictive, and I'd recommend it to fans of the beauty of music. -- Lady Enslain
