Comments:

I got this because of Claudia Sarne (12 Rounds)'s contributions to the vocals. It's dark, moody and driving, very atmopheric and occasionally quite orchestral (it's about 1/2 instrumentals). It's definitely not for all tastes but if the description intrigues you, and/or if you like Claudia Sarne's vocals, you'd do well to give it a listen. (Neile)
