Dreadful Shadows - The Cycle (1999) Retail CD
I brought this album after hearing the stunning cover of 'Twist in my Sobriety' a few weeks back. I then immediately headed to the local metal-records store and picked up this stunning collection of dark, melodious darkwave and electro-goth rock. From the offset there is a strangely magnetic vibe to the beginning of this record. The feeling of swirling encompasses you as you begin to feel as though you're falling head-first into a cavernous never-ending pit- then delivers you into the pounding opener that is 'futility'. After the awesome start, you are then blessed with such tracks as 'New Daymore…' (with it's electro-goth vibe and amazing chorus), 'Intransigence' and 'Courageous' (with their melodious, evocative lyrics), then such songs as' the vortex' with it's duel-voice chorus and kick-ass drums, and after a series of more melodious, technically-superb songs, everything then makes way for the finale- 'the cycle' although by far not the album's best song is a strong finisher, but the real icing on the cake so to speak is the bonus track. 'Twist in my sobriety' seems to be the perfect cover for the band, as it works terrifically well with their dark, deep vocals, and pounding drums.Overall, a techincally supreme album, let down only by minor niggles. However, they are very minor and do not dampen the overall accomplishment of the album, and thus I would recommend this album to anyone who likes crisp drums, pounding basslines, slick guitarwork, but most importantly- for anyone who likes their music as a mixture of heavy chugging riffs, sharp drums, and more synth-based, dank, charnel-house-esque atmospheres.
