World Below – Sacrifices to the Moon
2004 – Doom Symphony
Once again, YouTube lacked but a single song from this gothic masterpiece. I am well aware that I just used gothic and masterpiece in the same sentence. The vocals are operatic and a wee bit cheesy but it works. They sing about vampires and werewolves, yet it works. I don’t know how this band did it, frankly. They took all of the things that I hate about gothic doom and made it really work for me. I (choke) even enjoyed the atmospheric keyboards. Moody and over the top, this is a must buy if you can find it.
