Another Melodic Death Metal band that deserves a thread, this Finnish group has made 5 albums including a 2011 release. A good friend of mine on another forum recommended me this group and for good reason, they have a pretty good collection of songs, I can't wait for their new release.

Discography
In The Halls of Awaiting (2002)
Since the Day It All Came Down (2004)
Above the Weeping World (2006)
Across The Dark (2009)
One For Sorrow (2011)
Shadows of the Dying Sun (2014)
Winter's Gate (2016)
Heart Like a Grave (2019)
Anno 1696 (2023)

Some songs I love.






This is a band if most of you are into the melodic death metal scene and haven't heard of them, check them out. :D

I get a lot of listens out of this band when I set my last.fm to the Melo-death station. I absolutely love their sound. Nice thread too.

Picked up their 2011 album One For Sorrow, this is one I have been eager to get my hands on for ages. This band have been pretty damn consistent in quality.

Great stuff!! Hey Riff Raff I changed out the video for you for Through The Shadows (great tune) with the actual video.

The one that was up there was one of those 8-Bit versions. It happens.

I more or less lost interest in them after "Above the Weeping World, as I felt the band stagnated after that one. I did listen to the two following albums, but they just didn't do much for me. I've read some exceptional reviews of the new one, so I guess I'll check it out!

I never say perfection loosely but in my opinion In The Halls of Awaiting is musical perfection. An absolute beast of an album to start their career as a force in metal.
