Closer to the pain

(3 out of 5 stars)
"I would not be surprised if this album had a title "Black Vanity, part II" since it has a sound similar to the first album's , though they are still different. "Elysia" is a good song, catchy, mensurable and emotional, but "Closer to the pain" is tuneless. I had never heard before that Mathias Lodmalm can only sing "hey, hey, it's a last transmission, yeah" the whole song, third is also monotonous, the same as "Primal" where lyrics contain only one word. And also it is usually there that one riff repeats itself a hundred times during one song. Of course, album has positive moments as well, and "Sundown" is the best song of all day long. "Ophidian" and "The embrace" are great , too, deep and emotional. I gave this album three stars because it has plenty of weak songs and I still prefer two previous albums "Black Vanity" and "Godless Beauty" a lot more."
