Still one of the most gut wrenching releases in the history of doom. Definitely not an album that I can listen to all the time, but it has it's place at the right time.

Of course can't ignore Watching from a Distance, but... I think that 40 Watt Sun with The Inside Room tops it. Gig on last October @ Hellsinki was absolutely great! And Betrayal at Bespin filled a good spot as a opening act, everyone should try Rains.

Either way, Patrick Walker has this strange ability to make everything eerie and beautiful with his charisma & talent. Truly special frontman.

Fully agreed. I rarely get goosebumps listening to music, but "Footprints" does it every single time.

The lyrics to "Footprints" make me cringe, they are so goddamn personal. Emotive, devastating portrayal of doom metal.



Here I am wide open, surrendering to your side. I have laid down my armour,
I have no sword at my side. I leave behind me the ruins of the fortress I swore to defend;
I leave behind me foundations; I'll leave you a man I'll need you to mend.
And through all the battles around me I never believed I would fight.
Yet here I stand, a broken soldier, shivering and naked, in your winter light.

Haven't heard the album but I've been listening to Skepticism quite a bit lately and looking for more good doom. Those lyrics look like they could have came off any shitty power metal album but whatever, maybe it works well with the song...

If you like Black Sabbath, you should like Warning I guess. They're definitely not for me.

Now Skepticism on the other hand, that's definitely a band I can get behind.

They are even better if you read them in the "Butt-Head trying to woo a woman" voice.

Gotcha. I don't know, I love Sabbath but hate most of their imitators, most seem to completely miss the mark, however I totally love Church of Misery - Houses of the Unholy because they're actually playing some goddamn RIFFS. Can't stand stoner shit anymore whatsoever. Electric Wizard was cool when I was 17, etc. Skepticism is the first funeral doom band I've heard in a long time that is truly captivating.

One of my all time favorite Doom Metal albums! Those fucking vocals are so powerful...and those riffs! Perfect from start to finish. Truly Heavy in every sense of the word.

I don't like all weepy doom but I do like how Watching From A Distance is on the verge of tears all the time, so that's nice. The vocal delivery is a key ingredient. 40 Watt Sun is good too, I wonder if it's about time for a new album...

You obviously do not understand when raw emotion is put into lyrics. He wrote some personal stuff, therefore I don't expect narrow-minded subhumans to comprehend.

Has definitely not held up for me. Great guitar tone and cool riffs, but I find the lyrics incredibly cringe worthy. Plus all that Miskatonic bs over the years has really soured me on this stuff. Reading this endless "true doom" e-drama is so fucking tiresome.
