Forest of Shadows - _Where Dreams Turn to Dust_
(Rage of Achilles, 2001)
by: Pedro Azevedo (8 out of 10)
The debut EP by Sweden's Forest of Shadows contains three tracks of melodic doom/death lasting a total of over half an hour. Slow and mournful, Forest of Shadows combine death and clean vox, and also add an array of other instruments for a mildly orchestral feel. The music isn't overly complex, yet contains enough variety and changes frequently enough to avoid any monotony if you enjoy this kind of doom metal. Simultaneously funereal and catchy enough, the music contains a strong emotional charge as well as a pleasant kind of unpretentious quality. Forest of Shadows manage to successfully gather influences from several of the European doom metal giants and use them without coming across as very derivative, especially for a debuting band. An impressive debut by these northern doomsters, and a smart signing by Rage of Achilles.
