Lake of Tears - _A Crimson Cosmos_
(Black Mark, 1997)
by: Pedro Azevedo (
This album seems to have been written while totally disregarding any boundaries whatsoever; in fact, this album has a clear mainstream feel to it at times, something I really don't like. However, besides that, Lake of Tears have included lots of very nice easy-to-catch melodies, which are what makes this album very much worth a listen for fans of soft melodic/gothic(?) metal; in fact, I even happened to enjoy it myself, which is unusual, considering my statements above. LoT's music spreads to very different areas, yet things never go too much out of proportion. _A Crimson Cosmos_ is varied (even though its total length is under 40 minutes), and therefore has its ups and downs, but if you're not worried about its softness, and happen to enjoy mellow and melodic stuff, this might very well turn out to be a good buy for you, as it's musically pretty good.
