Eye Of Solitude - Sui Caedere ("to kill oneself") is available on the Kaotoxin Records Bandcamp. This lies somewhere between death doom and funeral doom. Super deep growled vocals, melancholic guitar leads and layers of synths for that sorrowful feel. Agressive parts with double kick drumming and parts that almost sounds like downtempo symphonic black metal. And a few out of the box touches like the haunting spoken word passage in Depths of a Sick Mind.
This is well executed music, but special mention must go the to the drumming. It's varied and dynamic using fills and double kicks to keep things interesting even in the slower passages. The songs are filled with memorable melodies that are allowed to develop also through the more up-tempo parts, reminiscent of early Paradise Lost. This as a very likable album.
