Within Tears - _Moments of Life: Chapter 1_
(Independent, 2001)
by: Adrian Bromley (7 out of 10)
While there is a good mixture of ideas on the debut disc from Within Tears (i.e. doom, gothic and death metal), the real standout attribute has to be the solid doom-like flow of the band's material. Not all the songs have been able to grasp the heavy weight of the doom influence, but the ones that do sure stand out: "Beauty Creates Pain", "In Mourning" and "Alone". Within Tears' masterminds Anthony Lauer and Sal Sgroi have done a superb job at creating a real creepy atmosphere here on _Moments of Life_, successfully orchestrating songs of power and dark passion. While the disc does suffer at times due to lack of studio experience, give these guys a few more years and/or until their next record and I'm sure the results will be mind-blowing.
