I got the privilege to sample this whole album by ear (I do not own a copy) and it is simply amazing. Deep shadows meets Venus doom.
Tears On Tape (Honest Review)
To best describe the vibe of this record, I'd have to say it's Venus Doom guitars and gloom meets Screamworks pop melodies. This blend does well for the majority of the record, but several songs felt split down the middle between vocal melody and instrumentation.
Although I still enjoy them, some songs were reminders of similarities better executed on Screamworks. Honestly, I wish the band would have brought Matt Squire to work with Hiili Hiilesmaa. Tears On Tape is the middle ground of two extremely different directions HIM has taken (Venus Doom & Screamworks, largely influenced by their producers), but is only approached from one of these sides.
The best example I can give is the difference between W.L.S.T.D. and Love Without Tears. W.L.S.T.D. sounds like it was taken directly from Venus Doom, and Love Without Tears sounds like it should have been recorded with Squire on Screamworks.
Tears On Tape often sounds split between styles, but you'll still find the band you know and enjoy writing Love Metal.
Favorite Songs: Hearts At War - W.L.S.T.D. - Into The Night - Unleash The Red (Fantastic Intro). Thanks for reading, I hope it was helpful.
They just keep getting better and better!
