Sentenced - _Story: A Recollection_
(Century Media, 1998)
by: Adrian Bromley (8 out of 10)
It took me while to really get into this band. And while the band has changed its style tremendously since their early days, their brilliant musical career has nonetheless been an interesting ride. _Story: A Recollection_ is in fact a 'Best of...' package by this popular Finnish death metal (now more a metal/rock) act from 1991's _Shadows of the Past_ onto last year's superb _Down_ LP. All the band's popular and/or fan faves are here: "Nepenthe" and "New Age Messiah" (from 1995's _Amok_), "My Sky Is Darker Than Thine" and "Awaiting the Winter Frost" (from 1993's classic LP _North From Here_). Plus there are eleven more numbers including their cool Iron Maiden cover song "The Trooper" and the previously unreleased "No Tomorrow". Like a "story", this collection accurately chronicles the various time periods of Sentenced, allowing the listener to be captivated by strong melodies, well-thought out arrangements and some classic melodic/death metal. An LP fans will no doubt scope out.
