Everlasting Fall (Aftermath Music)
Enslain Magazine Issue #6
Order Issue #6!  This review included. "Everlasting Fall" has everything one could look for in a metal release. This Finnish four-piece write melodic death metal with prominent traditional metal roots and solos, as well as blackened sounds throughout. They never seem to slow down; all of the songs present the guitar harmonies in front of mid to fast-paced drums and healthy growls. The sound is both somber and punishing at the same time, and is tight, full, and has a lot of presence. I really enjoyed their metal rendition of Beethoven's "Moonlight Sonata" during the song "My Angel." This promising effort comes in attractive packaging, and has great production, leaving very little to be desired. The songs take a little while to catch, but it's definitely worth the time. -- Lady Enslain
