Thaurorod - Morning Lake
It’s hardly been half a year that I’ve been reviewing for Metalrage, and yet I need to review Thaurorod for the second time. With pleasure that is, because their first effort Tales of the End received the highest score I have given so far (92). Morning Lake is their second effort and it would have surprised me very much if they could exceed Tales of the End
 
First of all, I think it’s a bit weird to release two separate records in one year, each containing only three songs, but I guess they have their reasons for that. I recommend reading the review of Tales of the End first since Morning Lake of course has many resemblances.
 
The first thing that catches the eye is the cover art, which once again is very sublime. I remember how Thaurorod struck me with its originality, creative melodies and exceptional vocals. Luckily, this record isn’t any different. Although not appealing as Tales of the End their melodies are still a pleasure to my ear and the professionalism of these guys still shows. Also the mastering is once again very well! Vladimir Lumi’s low heavy yet clean vocals again do a great job, which seems to become Thaurorod’s trademark.
 
I can’t say that much new actually, cause there isn’t much new… Except that it’s just three more great songs from this band. If you liked Tales of the End pick this one up too! It’s not as good as the former, but still very well enjoyable!
