Synopsis

Product Description
Only one year after their groundbreaking debut release, Seventh Angel unleashed this thrash metal masterpiece upon a very unsuspecting world. The band's 1991 release is generally slower, but heavier than The Torment. As the album title indicates, Lament For the Weary is a concept album which lyrically focuses on how we deal with lifelong depression and pain... Haunting musically and lyrically, don't be surprised if Lament For the Weary sends chills down your back. Rarely does a thrash metal band hit the bullseye so definitively. And rarely is a band able to augment full on shredding with mellow, subtle moments the way Seventh Angel triumphs on Lament... Get it now before this classic metal release goes out of print again!

SWEET TO THE EARS

"If you long for the days of old Metallica then this is for you. Yes, this is a Christian Band, BUT WHO CARES it rocks!!!!!!!!When I first heard this one in 91 I was blown away buy it and still am when I listen to it. It went out of print, just the The Torment, but now is re-released and I'm sure it sounds just as good as when it was originally released. You won't find song lyrics like this ever again for a Christian Band or originality. From the first song Recollections Of A Life Once Lived to the ending song Farewell To Human Cries, you'll be just as amazed with them as I am. This is a must have for any metal fan who loves metal no matter Who they sing about."

"Better Than Metallica, and other big Groups.
Amazing Thrash and Doom guitar riffs. And Epic acoustic
guitar riffs."
Instant Thrash/Doom Classic!

"Hail the Seventh Angel! This is their second full length album and my favorite. This is such an excellent thrash album with big doom influences. I honestly never heard of that mixture until I listened to this album. It is so obvious due to some members being involved in several doom bands.

Each song is so freaking heavy and the guitar riffs is still so dirty but much chunkier than the debut album. The production is so much better in this album. I really appreciate that the bass is much more listenable because I'm bass freak and I think bass is under appreciated in a lot of metal albums. The drums is even better due to production and the drummer improving his skills. Overall, all instruments are much improved and the debut album is tough to beat but they surely did so.

The lyrics is amazing and very emotional inspired. It's very dark and they spoke of topics that not so many bands are willing to sing about. Especially the song "No Longer A Child" about a child experiencing abuse and rape.

Every ounce of this album is amazing and I will have to say this album is near perfection. In fact I went ahead and gave this album the perfect 10/10 which is a first!


Best Song: "Lament For The Weary"-title track and the most balanced in this album.

Worst Song: "Life In All Of Its Emptiness"-still excellent song but just inferior to rest of the songs in this album.
