Syrach - Days Of Wrath
In a murky village in Norway in 1993 a band emerged called Syrach. I have no idea what that means, nor do I care. Since their inception the band has released a handful of demos and one full length. Now their second full length is released, on Napalm Records to be precise. Letís check out Days Of Wrath.
 
The music is a mix between the 90ís UK doom and the funeral doom of My Dying Bride and Paradise Lost. The album has its moments here and there, but overall itís just a long wait until itís over. There are too many parts where nothing really interesting is going on, and when something does happen you get your hopes up, only to see it crumble as the track slides by further.
 
An occasional heavy groove or even an up-tempo part is not uncommon on Days Of Wrath, but in the long songs theyíre not able to keep their head above the water. The feeling that youíre listening to music that makes you yawn doesnít help much either, not even guest performances of Grutle Kjellson (Enslaved) and Silje Wergeland (Octavia Sperati) can help that.
 
I wouldnít say itís a bad album, itís just boring to me. A one-sided sound and a one-sided vocalist add to a monotonous recording, and even in doom metal that can be a bad thing. Too bad.
