THE SINS OF THY BELOVED
PERPETUAL DESOLATION
ALBUM NAPALM RELEASE: APRIL, 2000 REVIEW: JUNE 8, 2000

The Sins of thy Beloved are supposed to play gothic metal. I think that's a really weird and false description of this music, since it has little to do with goth or gothic culture and imagery. The music is metal and the vocalist sounds like a black or death metal guy. And I could have lived without the female soprano, although she's the best part on this album. Pretentious female vocals la Theatre of Tragedy aren't my thing, you could say.
If you're into bands like Cradle of Filth and Theatre of Tragedy, I suppose you will like this album. It's namely something like a mixture of those.
