A phenomenal album with amazing guitar riffs, sound so thick you can cut it with a knife, and incredible gloomy atmosphere. I cannot stop thinking how similar this album is to Veronika Decides to Die by Saturnus. Awesome discovery!
Favorite track: On Antediluvian Shores.
...if you're a fan of that moody, mid-tempo, graveyard soul-searching sort of exposition, delivered with the typically slick melodiousness and polish of Gothenburg and beyond, here's another worthy example to add to your collection.

The second album by Soijl, a project founded by the Swedish multi-instrumentalist Matthias Svensson (Saturnus, Istapp, Vanmakt, Nidrike). Continuing the development of figurative ideas and the musical component of the debut work, "As The Sun Sets On Life", at the same time, is a new stage for the band. Gloomy, atmospheric doom death metal compositions with a dense sound and excellent performance are what Soijl is loved for, and this is exactly what the musicians offer in their new work, in a more spectacular form this time. The famous designer and photographer Roman Kamin (Wine From Tears, Mare Infinitum, Aut Mori) have been again responsible for the visual part of the album crafting a magnificent 12-page booklet.

Nightfall's Lament is as Ocean of Grief as it gets as far as the music and atmosphere go. These rat bastards once again takes it to new heights, filling your mind with doom and riffs tinged with black metal, through and through. The riffage compliments one another, with some feeling amped up than often leading into the cold and frosty ones . Old Man Doom

An absolutely amazing album that reaches you to the bottom of the abyss. Gaia takes you by the hand, tells you that you're not alone in this, the pain is over, the misunderstanding of your pain is over and accompanied by keyboards, violins, acoustic guitars, cello and amazing vocals, she pulls you out of the disgusting mire of your mind and together you embark on a journey of melancholy, despondency, hope, pessimism and the seasons. tenebriscaedes
