10 Songs, 50 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

On their fourth album, Swedish goth metallurgists Tribulation explore the underworld with their most thrilling and cohesive package yet. Picking up where 2015's The Children of the Night left off, songs like "The Lament," "Nightbound," and "Lady Death" combine soaring guitars, vintage horror-movie ambience, and frontman Johannes Andersson's ghostly death-metal growl with postmortem themes to create something truly awe-inspiring. Meanwhile, "The World" and epic closer "Here Be Dragons" deliver rich cinematic triumph via strings, darkly elegant guitars, and chilling glockenspiel melodies.

Parental Advisory: Explicit Lyrics.

Mr.Glock ,

Great music but

Yea. I have to agree with the others. The vocals where horrid. Made me wanna clear my throat. It’s like metal that wanted to be death metal but just couldn’t figure it out. The music and vocals just didn’t mesh and who ever produced needs to turn down the vocals during recording because it drowns out allot of the music. Volume levels are off buddy.

Vocals ruin a great sound

The music is well tuned and well put together. The vocals just turned me off, did not work well at all with the music.

For Those That Don't Appreciate The Vocals

Give this band a little time on your ears. I distinctly remember the first time I listed to this type of vocal and I didn't appreciate it either... at first. Now, the whole concept has turned around for me. You are likely so accustomed to hearing some great bands that have borderline pop singers that this is just difficult to get into initially.

Please give it time. You will open yourself up to a wealth of great music if you can get past the singer not sounding like Bieber.

Go listen to some Behemoth too.
