Review @ Satanicarchangel

18 Juni 2013


Some albums take time to grow on you, an album that on first listen doesn’t reveal much but repeated listens reveal an excellent musical voyage. Other albums don’t meander about taking time to grow accustom to, right from the moment you hit play it instantly hits you and makes you think “this is going to be a great album.” Shrouded Divine is one of these albums.

Shrouded Divine is a trip into Progressive Melodic Death Metal with excellent riffs, astounding melodies, powerful vocals and a doom inspired atmosphere. On their debut In Mourning have achieved what most bands can spend their entire career searching for but never finding; a distinctive sound. Shrouded Divine is one of those albums that certainly won’t be compared to anything else, it has it’s own unique flair, although I can make a few comparisons, Opeth, October Tide, Noumena and Insomnium instantly spring to mind, Shrouded Divine definitely stands on its own as a masterpiece of progressive and melodic Death Metal. Sure there’s plenty of bands who function on a similar wavelength and I could sit here for ages citing similar bands, but no band sounds quite like In Mourning. They’re really quite emotional, atmospheric and highly melodic.

The riffs on Shrouded Divine are more often than not quite simple, but are played in such a way that makes it seem not the case. They’re not generic, never boring and are instantly memorable, with The Black Lodge perhaps having the catchiest riff I’ve heard in a long time.

One of the main selling points of Shrouded Divine is that each song is unique; this alone is enough to merit a high score as the band is able to engrave a unique identity into each song to make it stand out but to never feel out of place in the album. Shrouded Divine is consistently brilliant and an album that is full of highlights, with each song being a major stand out. Each song has something to set it apart whether that’s the chorus of In The Failing Hour’s chorus, The Black Lodge’s phenomenal intro or the gentle and sensitive delivery of By Others Considered. This album is never short of excellent moments and is an album that constantly wows me on repeated listens.

Shrouded Divine is a powerful and engaging release with some of the best riffs in Melodic Death Metal. It’s very hard to find fault with this album and I strongly recommend this album to all fans of metal, it’s an album that Needs to be experienced by all.
