Sepulcretum is their first full length album. The female vocals are semi-operatic in style, while the male vocals combine both harsh (Not death metal harsh) and clean vocals. For the most part, the music is rather slow and melodic. The musicianship is excellent and they have developed some interesting original sounds. The album doesn’t feature any keyboard but instead has some brilliant violin work. The quality of the production of the album is excellent. It definitely isn’t an album for those who love intense speed, but if you like haunting gothic metal with melodic vocals and appreciate good music, you should check this album out.
