Sentenced -The Cold White Light lp


In stock


Black vinyl with gatefold cover

Some might see Sentenced as an underground metal band but when youll notice that the band have been around for more than 15 years and releasing almost ten studio albums you realize thats not the case. Sentenced is of course huge in their native Finland, where metal is more commercially accepted and where the lack of sunlight results in an unusually high suicide rate but they have also gained lots of success all over the globe. Sentenced may have started off as a death/black metal band, but the music on The Cold White Light is better categorized as goth metal. Songs such as Cross My Heart And Hope To Die, Brief Is The Light and Blood And Tears show the band’s gift for stirring, instantly memorable choruses, and the simple four-to-the-bar rhythms they use give the music a stripped-down rock n roll simplicity that is really effective. In fact, this album still manages to be quite heavy, only without being brutal or in your face about it. The album also includes some real depressive/suicidal lyrics that some might even call distasteful as the track Excuse Me While I Kill Myself. These slight criticisms aside, The Cold White Light still won’t please fans looking for a return to Down or Amok, but for those who enjoy depressive, melodic metal with a rock & roll feel to it should do the trick.
