Forgotten Tomb
…And Don’t Deliver Us From Evil
Released 30th October, 2012
Black/Doom Metal
Released via Agonia Records

I don’t know what it is about Italian metal bands, but for some reason they always seem to be on point. This goes for Forgotten Tomb with the release of their newest album …And Don’t Deliver Us From Evil. This is a beautifully written black/doom album with amazing musicianship and thrilling songs that will appeal to almost any fan of metal. Only being a seven track album, each song was heavy and melodic with such fullness to them which made the album easy to listen to.

A memorable track for me was …And Don’t Deliver Us From Evil just because of the changes from a slow tempo to a fast tempo heard throughout the song and the way it kept my attention even though the song itself is almost 8 minutes long. Usually band have a hard time transitioning fast and slow parts in songs, but I feel that the way Forgotten Tomb had done it with this song and a couple other songs such as Love Me Like You’d Love The Death and Deprived. I also love the use of clean vocals in the beginning of Adrift which only adds to the diversity of this album.

I actually started listening to this band fairly recently and I was impressed with their other albums and I am now just as impressed with the release of this album. ….And Don’t Deliver Us From Evil is a very well rounded album that incorporates many different musical elements and intertwines them flawlessly into the songs. The mix of faster, hard hitting black metal riffs with the more somber, melodic, and doomier parts makes this album beautiful and dark.

4.7/5
