In Grey - _Above_
by: Pedro Azevedo (4 out of 5)
This is the third demo CD In Grey have sent me [CoC #42, #52], and after the disappointing second one they now seem to be firmly back on track. A measly 7+ minutes are not a lot to judge a band by, but they do at least provide a reasonably strong indication that In Grey are headed somewhere more interesting than last time. "Above" is distinctly goth metal, and not bad at that, with some improvements in the clean vocal area as well. "I Amaze" is a more atmospheric song and more to my liking. Both tracks, but especially the latter, bear slight resemblance to some aspects of Katatonia's recent work as well. Not much else to write about such a short demo, except that the musicianship and production cannot be faulted, especially considering this is a demo. I shall be significantly more interested in hearing a more substantial disc from In Grey now -- and considering they have been around since 1992(!), perhaps it is about time they get their opportunity.
