Faith is a Karlshamn, southern Sweden based doom metal band, which was probably the first of its country, but by far not the most profitable. They started back in ’84 and with Blessed? they have just released their third full length album. The basis of their music can be considered as heavy, gloomy doom with folk influences, but they also are open-minded towards symphonic and progressive elements.
All in all this is a decent record for the doom fans amongst you guys. No “same shit, different day”-crap, but a fresh and well considered release and if you live in Holland you definitely should check them out at Dutch Doom Days VII in Rotterdam.
