While Heaven Wept - Vast Oceans Lachrymose

While Heaven Wept - Vast Oceans Lachrymose
Melodic Doom Metal
Track listing:
The Furthest Shore
To Wander the Void
Living Sepulchre
Vessel
Vast Oceans Lachrymose
Epilogue

My, my, where do I even begin with this one. Well if I were to sum this album up with one word, it would be "beautiful." There really is no other way to describe it, no matter how cliche and overused the word may be. This is Melodic Doom Metal at it's finest. The weeping melodies of the guitar shroud the album in a sorrowful bliss, a parallelism not easily mastered. The vocals are downright incredible. The harmonies the vocals display on this album are magnificent. Focusing mainly on the Sea, this album features both epics and quick magnanimous tunes that will most likely have you coming back for more. Please enjoy.
