It All Ends Today (Euphonious)
Enslain Magazine Issue #7
Order Issue #7!  This review included.
Dark, symphonic, and still intensely heavy, Stigmathe´st create a sound that is uniquely their own and can appeal to many. With some of the most creatively crafted melodies, and symphonic keyboards that are integral instead of supplemental, their rich atmospheres catch on strongly, and demand attention. The growled yet decipherable vocals are of a heavier nature than what is common for dark melodious metal, yet are highly appropriate, and add to the aggression already present in the drumwork. The guitars and keyboards mimic and play off of each other amazingly, and each song has a distinct feel and new ways of mixing these elements. "It All Ends Today" is nothing really groundbreaking, but is a highly enjoyable release nonetheless. -- Lady Enslain
