Ekklesiast - When The Dead Boughs Will Awake From The Dreams
When The Dead Boughs Will Awake From The Dreams is an album no self-respecting metalhead wants to listen to, let alone review. Why not? Well, first of all it is Christian doom metal. Second of all, it’s a Russian band, and all of the lyrics are in their native tongue. Who in the world wants to listen to a bunch of depressed Russians worshipping that cock they call God? Ekklesiast. Whaat, the fuck?
 
But, it is about the music. And that sucks. Re-re-re-re-regurgitated funeral death/doom riffs, accompanied by this crazed Christian mumbling/grunting about the Lord. There are also some clean vocal parts, which are out of key and just plain retarded at times. The noble fact that this is actually a re-recording of their 2001 record of the same title and a number of songs of their debut demo record Touch Of Snowstorm does no good either. Fact is that they claim to have re-interpreted, recorded (perhaps religionized!) and mixed these songs in a professional recording studio. Waste of time and money if you ask me, for the sound quality is quite shitty.
 
The worst thing is that this monster lasts over 74 minutes, which actually achieves to get the listener depressed, not through music but through its level of irritation. But when it’s over, there is light at the end of the tunnel. I hate to be a dick, but this is a piece of shit that nobody should ever listen to. Not even God likes it.
