Undisputed Champion!
Alexander Adamov | Chicago, IL USA | 10/11/2004

"This is one of the albums I will ever cherish. With incredible tonality and proficiency in composition, these guys have set the death metal bar pretty high. The vocals perfectly match the somber and dark music engulfing your mind in a way you feel helpless. This is definitely the starting point for a potential fan in the genre. I believe this work will stay as a classic and a reference point for years to come."
Impressive Second Album

"I'm not a huge fan of the gothic metal genre, but there are a few bands that really stand out from the gloomy as hell crowd. One such band is Germany's Crematory.

I think that the main reason I enjoy this band more than most goth metal acts is that they never forget that they are in fact a metal band. They have gothic elements, but it doesn't stop them from being heavy. And they write melancholy songs, but it doesn't stop them from playing fast when necessary. There are plenty of keyboards, but they're used to enhance the songs, not set some weepy background atmosphere.

1994's Just Dreaming is the band's second album. Like the debut (Transmigration), Just Dreaming comes across as a death metal album more than anything else, though the speedy riffs and growling vocals are matched with gothic arrangements, prominent keyboards, and the occasional female vocal. A good point of comparison is Moonspell's debut album Wolfheart.

Crematory should appeal to anyone who's into gothic metal like My Dying Bride, Tristania, and Theatre of Tragedy, though it may be a bit too fast-paced and (dare I say it) upbeat for some gothic metal fans."
