Guy James This is just glorious, the riffs are fantastic and not stale and overdone (A common issue in Doom) The guitar tone is utterly devastating! Lyricism and vocals are gorgeous and the melodies are catchy and laden with just the right level of effects. I didn't think the bands previous albums/singles could be outdone but this is undoubtedly their best work and I feel a fool for not having listened to it sooner. Favorite track: Moriah.

tobsucht80 Kroh balances between classic heavy rock like Black Sabbath with a touch of My Dying Bride. The whole concept is brightened up by his experimental ideas. Especially the voice of Oliwia, revealing her slavic singing culture, makes Kroh something very unique. Favorite track: Moriah.
Hellride Music

Hellride Music Kroh creates Doom on their own terms. It seems like they anticipate what is expected from the listener, and then either do some creative take on it, or eschew it altogether. It’s very cool to see and hear bands veering off the “Sabbath-By-Numbers” route. Favorite track: Moriah.

FDJ Stunning occult/doom grooves over which superb ethereal and powerful vocals majestically swoop and soar like a swoopy soary thing:) Favorite track: Rigor Mortis.

Sekator Another fine slab of doom. Moriah is a gigantic new step forward, I hope that is the future direction for the band Favorite track: Moriah.

Track Name: Rigor Mortis
Ethereal derailment,
Shamanic enlightenment.

I am the embodiment of sin, embodiment of sin,
Cold and mean.
I am the masochistic pain, the masochistic pain
Deep within.
(Cold and mean)

Rapid putrefaction, slow decomposition.
Rigor mortis baby, life in intermission.

Profound state of wonder,
No limits, no borders.

I am the embodiment of sin, embodiment of sin,
Cold and mean.
I am the masochistic pain, the masochistic pain
Deep within.

Rapid putrefaction, slow decomposition.
Rigor mortis baby, life in intermission.

Rapid putrefaction, slow decomposition (she’s deathly! she’s deathly!),
Rigor mortis baby, life in intermission. (she’s deathly! she’s deathly!)
Track Name: Nemertean Girl
Friend you crawl right through my insides,
Use me as your host.
Slowly penetrate my body,
Kiss my open sores.

Girl, you shouldn’t play with fire.
Control your sick desires
Before you eat your tail,
Nemertean girl.

Love, you’re rotten, full of horrors,
Foul within your core.
Hypocritical deceiver,
You are nothing more.

Girl, you shouldn’t play with fire.
Control your sick desires
Before you eat your tail,
Nemertean girl.

My god, maggot girl.
Maggot, maggot girl.

Girl, you shouldn’t play with fire,
Control your sick desires.
You’ll reap what you have sown,
Nemertean girl.
Track Name: Moriah
Over the moor
She laid her tomb.
Sapphire eyes
Cried at the moon.
Deep in the wood
She drained the blood.

Oh hosanna in the highest,
Oh Moriah show your secrets.
Oh hosanna in the highest,
Tell the stories of your torment.

Do not mourn me
Dear beloved,
For your venom
Poisoned my head.

Oh hosanna in the highest,
Oh Moriah show your secrets.
Oh hosanna in the highest,
Tell the stories of your torment.

On mossy field
Her fate was sealed.
With one swift cut
She found relief.

Oh hosanna in the highest,
Oh Moriah show your secrets.
Oh hosanna in the highest,
Tell the stories of your torment.

Oh hosanna in the highest,
Oh Moriah show your secrets.
Oh hosanna in the highest,
Tell the stories of your torment.

Oh hosanna!
