In My Shiver is an Italian post-black metal group and this Delicate Poison is their second album to date. The band seems to have a bleak outlook on life, as the music they play always contains a certain melancholy and sombre atmosphere. Stylistically they incorporate many shoegaze elements into a foundation of black metal. The black metal part of this release is reminiscent of bands like Lantlos, Alcest, and Katatonia. Often the vocals are clean and show a slight gothic touch and although proficiently done they come across as slightly lacklustre. Probably, done intentionally. Their experimentation is rather limited and when developed more, could have set Delicate Poison really apart from other releases in this style. Now the songs contain too much of the same ideas. Still, In My Shiver has made a competent album, which only just falls short of being excellent
