Swallow the Sun
The Morning Never Came (Olympic)

By: Mike SOS

Swallow the Sun is a six-deep Finnish doom metal troupe whose North American debut disc contains eight tracks (plus an unlisted Candlemass cover) of slow, churning, slit your wrists and overdose on pills kind of music. This CD should come with a warning sticker for the depressed to steer clear it's so dark. Stark usage of piano assists the overall gloom and doom mood, while the foreboding guitars and death growling vocals add an eerie mystique to the already murky delivery, as the rhythm section keeps the procession at the proper pace. If you dig Sentenced, Opeth, My Dying Bride, and Type O Negative, then The Morning Never Came is an essential pickup for you, as it combines all of the aforementioned band's attributes, creating a staggeringly ominous listening experience.
