I was looking at the second hand CDs on the metal floor of 'disc union' (a CD chain store) in Shibuya, Tokyo and I noticed that this flipping amazing melodic death metal was being played on the stereo. As I continued browsing, the quality of the music continued to be sublime. So then I asked who it was and it was this awesome band 'Solerrain' from Russia. I didn't hesitate and bought this album there and then. I don't often buy 'new' releases, but this was well worth it. Imagine a band melding the best from Swedish and Finnish melodic death metal all on one disc. There are Swedish death grunts, a Finnish sense of chord progressions and elements of power metal thrown in, especially in the solos. A very enjoyable listen indeed. It's heavy, has no clean vocals, melodic as foo and has inspired solos. What more could you want from a melodic death metal band in this day and age? Basically, this is like CoB if they still had some balls and originality. Epic cover art!
