3.5 greatShatteredSoul | January 28th 09

Songs for the sinners is the fifth studio album of Finnish GothMetal group Charon. Since "The Dying Daylights" their sound has refined to somewhat heavier direction. Album flows naturally between slower compositions like "Air", "House of the Silent" and faster more energetic ones, for example "Colder", "Ride on Tears". Over this all hangs this dark longing atmosphere, which is very characteristic for the genre. Songs For The Sinners is album fulfilled with pain & melancholy striving towards powerful passion. That passion is expressed by singer JP Leppaluotos lowtuned voice, which works very well both in melodious choruses and more slowtempered verses. Guitarwork is solidly done, there are times it even fascinates and enriches you and the whole concept. Sadly Charons weakest point is the drummers very simplified & uninspiring playing style. Another minus comes from the dullness of the albums atmosphere.
All in all "Songs For The Sinners" serves ten tasty & powerfull gothrock compositions in a neat package that's able to indicate moderate progress & growth.

Melodic, passionate and beautiful. Charon have crafted an immense and atmospheric gothic metal album, creating absolute awe-inspiring segments that continue to show improvement in this band, with the only weak point being the sometimes dull drumming, however the rest of the band more than makes up for this shortcoming.
