Rating - 3 Stars

Hailing from Finland, Counting Hours have crafted an amazing album for their sophomore effort. Fitting nicely into the more accessible side of the doom metal genre, the band have crafted something that contains both the old atmospheric black-tinged work and the newer dark gothic rock work of Katatonia in one place, so much so that they sometimes sound like a clone of the band. This isn't always the case though, as the band does break free of the obvious influence at times, and these are the moments when the album really shines. The drums sometimes pummel in blasts, and vocally the band occasionally goes into some deep death-doom territory. Most of all though, it is about the atmosphere, with a tight and crisp production leaving the dual guitar lines almost weeping in sorrow. For better or worse (depending on your tastes), no tracks really stand out against others, instead this being an album that begs to be listened to as a whole - but one that will leave you in a melancholy mood at its conclusion.
