Cataleptic - Forward

Label : Archaic Sound | Archive under doom metal

Release type: Full-length CD

Marcel H. : Two band members of Cataleptic are also part of Solothus and given the fact I really enjoy that band a lot my expectations were high for ‘Forward’. But unfortunately I have to fully agree with my colleague Pim who said about their debut ’Strength Within’ the following “Within the compositions there are some death/doom parts that are quite boring but the band also has more upbeat passages that have cool melodies and remind of old Katatonia, their fellow countrymen Rapture and Italy's Forgotten Tomb.” That remark also holds true for this release. For doom fans such as myself this album will go down fine, but the average listener probably will enjoy it a lot less.
