I knew I'd like this, but they managed to actually mix it up a bit as well. I can't wait to listen to this more now : )

How could you not be into Serenades?

Truthfully, this is one of those bands I couldn't pull myself to listen to (their new stuff that is). They're one of those bands where the description totally turned me off but I'm just going to do a leap of faith and we will see. The Silent Enigma is just boring and I've tried so many times but maybe I will try Serenades. What is your favourite of their newer sound?

I totally agree with the review. Up to now, to me it does not stand up to its predecessors. I liked the positive/bright attitude of the last works, but in some way this is a step back to their roots.
Am I the only one who finds Lee Douglas vibrato almost annoying?

I agree about The Silent Enigma. My favorite of their new sound is We're Here Because We're Here, but two of my favorite tracks are the 'Untouchable' duo on Weather Systems.

I love Serenades, though. You can't like doom and not like Serenades.

Agreed, Willie. Serenades is absolute gold, though The Silent Enigma is also excellent...

"Anthema" and "Ariel" are great standouts. Not to sure about the rest of the album. I mean it's good. But I'm not blown away yet. Still another solid release at the very least.

That's crazy. It's one of my favorite doom albums. On the other hand, Always by The Gathering is another one of my favorite doom albums.

Also The Last Song Part 2 is up there for me too. The last 2 minuets of that song are incredible!

This sounds more like radiohead or pink floyd. Only their first couple LPs were death/doom

Digging: Ulver - Blood Inside
