The grand garden of female fronted bands is becoming ever more cramped, with new flowers blooming each year; the vast majority may be beautiful but trying to tell them apart is as futile as trying to pick out the right midge that bit you. Of course there’s a fair few unsightly weeds making the place look untidy, along with those that have simply withered away. And then you clap eyes on the most stunning flower blossoming before your eyes at the bottom of the garden, which stands majestically above the rest, the likes of which are so rare you’d have to assume it came from some exotic land where even very few exist. That rare flower is known as Madder Mortem.
There is simply so much going on through these 12 tracks that I could fill several pages with this review; in fact even now as I wrap things up I am concerned that there is so much I have missed out. No amount of waffle from the likes of me can sum up quite how stunning this album is, so for the sake of energy preservation; buy this album. Now. Without it, your life will be incomplete.
