"MY DYING BRIDE, PARADISE LOST, CATHEDRAL, WINTER, disEMBOWELMENT, and lastly ANATHEMA are the god-fathers of the "Doom/Death" movement... Silent Enigma is what I like to consider the last truely original "Doom/Death" record... scores of bands count them as influence...
I have always nicknamed this release as the "Into the Pandemonium" of this era of "Doom/Death" metal... Vincent's "clean" vocals are very similiar to what Tom G. Warrior refered to as his "mournful vocal"... and the guitar work is simply brilliant, and crushingly heavy. This album is a very important release of this era and for those who dont own it, that's unfortunate."
