Fatum Elisum - Fatum Elisum (2009)

Genre : Doom Death/Melodic Doom Death
Country : France

In these days I don't have many time to write reviews or comments, but this album deserves it!

Fatum Elisum is other awesome band from France (Rouen), and this band has taken the best influences of the Doom Death Metal. Their music captures the true essence of this magnificent genre. They mix ultra-slow riffs (if you want Funeral Doom passages), with fast and apocalyptic soundscapes, obscure melodies, melodic riffs, old school influences, some clean chants, scream growls and deep grunts.

The melodies are the essence of this world, misery, agony, pain, suffering, solitude, sadness, and absolute melancholy. If you want to suffer, hear this album will be enjoyable!...
Definitively one of the best albums of the year!

This album is for fans of Ataraxie ('Slow Trascending Agony'), Imindain, Mourning Dawn, Funeralium, and My Dying Bride.
