Stigma - Solitude 24/7
Trondheim based Stigma has got some affinity with solitude, since three of their albums contained this word. Well good for you man, now with an intro to every song named after days of the week (hence; 24/7, poetic brilliance), Stigma can finally name an album Solitude 24/7. Everybody happy.

The album starts off with a choir. Personally, I don't give a funk-a-delic about choirs, but when making melodic metal, choirs are irreplaceable. So at least they're true to their genre. Stigma takes you on a melodic trip through the week and goes all out on melodic riffs and guitar scales. The orchestral instruments give a great vibe on the album and the vocals are really good.

Melodic metal is an exact description of what this album is all about and that implies that the album is somewhat predictable. I'm afraid it is... When listening to it, somehow most of the songs sound alike and aren't very original. Besides this, the overall production isn't quite as good as expected in this day and age. The melodic vibe however, is fantastic and does take you on a journey. Overall it's a nice album in your melodic collection, but don't go expecting to be blown away by outerworld brilliance.
