In the Gloomy and Cold Embrace
“No hope in sight, daylight before them dies, enshrined the horrified – no hope in sight.” The Plague Within is a very dark Gothic album. “All eyes see such shattered scenes of sorry surrender. Secrecy, an empire bleeds, its fallen pretenders fear the isolation. Returning life it dies in the dark.” Even the violin and viola sound morose and pessimistic. “The darkest past forever could last beneath the sanctity I pray for honesty’s sake. Never sail the lie when its scorn is brought to life, forever sacrifice the flame.” The album literally exudes black magic.

How did such mostly unimaginative drumming pass Holmesian and Mackintoshian scrutiny? I tend to be intrigued by the return to deep growling by the Holmesy Father, very much so actually, but the switches to regular singing, along with the ninth and tenth track in a way, seem to break immersion by some degree. While I contemplate exactly how much, Mydyingbrideian dimensions really, it leads to surprising philosophical questions, like whether someone has ever tried falsetto growls. There also is at least one instance of growling by regular voice, the fourth track to be particular, which would beg the question whether it was missed to pull some switch. There is a tendency to blame the sticker for promising too much, yet I have only the very plague within myself to blame for not wanting to be disappointed by these guys.
