Lake of Tears
Black Brick Road (Sanctuary Records)
By: Mike SOS
Lake of Tears is a long running Swedish Goth metal outfit whose latest release celebrates a rebirth of sorts for the trio, who after a short hiatus, decided to give it another go. And the rock world is grateful, as Black Brick Road spawns nine tracks of masterfully crafted, well textured songs that falls somewhere between the savvy of Deep Purple, Pink Floyd, and Opeth. Sonically charged with pronounced keyboards and shimmering guitar solos, tracks like "Making Evenings" and "Rainy Day Away" have that progressive rock edge without incessant musicianship distracting the listener, while the last track "Crazyman" showcases a heavier, yet still experimental outfit. If you're bored with the stateside version of metal, tune in to Lake of Tears' latest release and witness a mature, intelligent band blow you away firsthand.
