Forgotten Tomb – …And Don’t Deliver Us From Evil… [4.0]

This album is the 6th full-length album from Italy’s black/doom metal Forgotten Tomb. It keeps their traditional aggressive, black metal structure while digging into the underground tunnels made of more slower darker passages and horror influences. Paradise Lost and Katatonia feels behind the music’s perspective giving the album a mainstream atmosphere of doom metal.
The riffs are wide changing dimensions from a strict dark metal form into more progressive melodies. The vocals are poetic, pushing the listener into a specific feeling. This album is also very melodic and groovy, but with surprising changes.Especially the track Let’s torture each other which is almost danceable, but upon the end it becomes melancholic. A gloomy aura embraces the album not only because of the typical doom characteristics but even because the total sound is not filtered, but rough. Even if this album it’s not as strong like their previous Under Saturn Retrograde, which you couldn’t stop listen to, this band develops straight up ahead. The track Adrift contains even modern rock melodies with clear and soft vocals. Like Herr Morbid says himself, this new album is “the most personal one he has written since 2004’s Love’s Burial Ground and it explores the darkest corners of his mind like never before, making it without any doubt, one of the band’s more tortured and twisted offerings.”
