Puts pretty much all heavy metalfrom Sweden the last 10 years to shame.


Is that really saying much? (this doesn't include death/black/etc right? lol)

Also, Portrait might have something to say about that Razz

Well in my opinion, it says a lot. Not including other genres, no. It's not like I can name a Swedish heavy metal-album from the 90's either that matches In Solitude at their best. But I didn't really want to go over the top and exaggerate the whole thing, you know.

Portrait is indeed great, especially their second album!

Gotham City, Jonah Quizz, Mercy,and Axe Witch come to mind instantly, but I'm not sure if they're "dark" enough for people on this forum's taste. Heh.

Yes, I agree! Great songwriting on both albums, but the vocals put the second album on top!

Hehe, I never mentioned the 80's heavy metal from Sweden for a reason. A lot of gems, a lot!

I don't. Too much mediocre shit out there. If I'm gonna give a band my hard earned money for a record, I need to know it's gonna be worth it.

Sometimes yes, though I usually check out two or three songs from the album at hand to get the feel of it.
If the feeling and overall vibe is good, it's a purchase.

It depends. I'm down to a few bands that I've been following since the demo days. Katharsis and Watain being two of them.

They have played together since they were children, about 11 years old or something. Only one guitarist has changed since those times. I dont think there actually exists another Heavy Metal band with this kind of history. "Image over substance"-idiots, fuck off. New song rules.

I do all the time if it's a band I know and like. I'll check out stuff on youtube or bandcamp if I'm unfamiliar with them, but if it's a band that I've followed for a while I usually do a blind buy everytime.

As far as Swedish heavy metal in the last 10 years, Enforcer gets my vote.

I like Enforcer aswell. Death By Fire is really good. Prefer that One over their earlier records.
But there is something about Portrait and especially In Solitude that catches me. They are a bit darker.

There will always be people who'll spit on, and label "style-over-substance", anything more catchy and that gets more attention than their favourite imageless avant-garde trve vndergrovnd okkvlt orthodox BM one-man band that only has one or two shitty demos and never plays live.
