Sweet Sorrow

Breaking the Silence Enslain Magazine Issue #6
"Breaking the Silence" is an unusual demo from Slovenian based Sweet Sorrow. They are of a melodic nature, with occasional keyboard passages, and guitarwork consisting of simple chords and solos, but it sounds really inviting at times. The songs are slow at times and somewhat goth influenced, but the pace is often changed. What really killed this tape for me was the vocals. The singer sounds like he was meant to sing punk, from style of singing. He also sings too cleanly and with too much echo to match the slightly more aggressive music backing him. The songs are interesting at times, especially "The Seeping Beauty," but not enough to make up for everything I dislike about it. Perhaps an instrumental follow-up could prove to be more gratifiying. -- Lady Enslain
