Sear Bliss - Forsaken Symphony
Score: 10/10
Again there's been changes in the line-up of Sear Bliss since the last cd, but this time the original guitar player Csaba Csejtei is back in the band. I guess his influence in the band is pretty big because this album sounds a lot more like their debut Phantoms again. More black metal with a much rawer sound than their Grand Destiny album. I think this is the perfect sounding Sear Bliss album. Raw yet very melodic, with the nice brass instruments from Grand Destination. Also in addition to the usual great Kris Verwimp coverart, the inner booklet now looks even better due to Flynn's art.

My Dying Bride - The Voice of the Wretched
Score: 10/10
Yes, after the two greatest-hits albums this is the My Dying Bride live-album. A chance to hear how My Dying Bride sounds live for all the people who couldn't be at one of their concerts (and who don't have the live bonusdisc from the Angel and the Dark River). Personally I'm not too fond of live albums, but this one has good songs (old and new), a good sound quality, it has a very nice design, and what makes this album a little extra special for me is that I was at the concert where it was recorded. So I guess this is nice to have, but I'm also glad that the compilation and live albums are all done now so My Dying Bride can concentrate on making new albums again...

Opera IX - Maleventum
Score: 9.5/10
A lot has changed for Opera IX since the last cd. Female singer Cadaveria and drummer Flegias have left the band, and the whole Opera IX-sound has changed a lot with it. Comparing it to the previous albums I think a lot of the atmosphere is lost, but I guess with the line-up change it's maybe better to judge it as a new band, and then it's not that bad at all. I think there's good potential for the future, but I guess the typical Opera-IX sound from previous albums that I liked so much is lost forever...
