Since 1996, the Australian Lycanthia released a demo in ’96, debut album in ’99, an EP in ’06, and now, the second album in 2013. Showing an even better musicianship and a stronger approach since their last album “Myriad”, Lycanthia presents a fairly standard but still nice album of melodic doom / death metal , dominated by clean female vocals, somber riffs, and devastating violin melodies. Although not revolutionary, what we have here is a surprisingly nice album, with a strong emphasis on atmosphere and melody, and a profound and sad atmosphere. The female vocals are sometimes too much emphasized and at times leave the fantastic growl/scream vocals in the background, but this is not often the case. This is a good, humble and honest album for those who like this sort of doom metal, and a nice album to pass the time from time to time. Support!
