Released in 1992, Cemetary’s An Evil Shade Of Grey is a great death/doom metal hybrid from Sweden that is unfortunately buried into obscurity relative to the popularity of Katatonia, a band which is similar in many ways. The one major difference between this and, say, Dance Of December Souls is that Cemetary embraced the death metal aspect of their sound much more than Katatonia did, and personally, I find that to make this a very interesting album to listen to. The riffs here are the main focus. Needless to say, I think Cemetary succeeded at creating this atmosphere. The main melodic elements of the album are the lead guitar, which plays the creepy sort of leads and solos that you’d expect on a death/doom album, and an acoustic guitar that appears every so often on top of a doomy riff that tends to mark a drastic shift the dynamics of the song.

An Evil Shade of Grey. Album (Studio full-length). Black Mark Production. into the shadows of an evil shade of grey. A taste of tears is flowing down my tongue like memories of days when the world was new and I was young. Nowadays my garden is pale and the trees bear fruit no more but so is life they say of age the colours fade away. As time pass by in this twilight land I wish the winds would take my hand.
Опубликовано: 2 years ago. Cemetary (Swe) - An Evil Shade of Grey (1992). This album has aged really well; didn't think too much of it when I first heard it but it's so damn insidious yet highly melodic without becoming sugary. Shame it hasn't left much of a mark on future bands.
