1 1/2 years after the great "Frozen", Sentenced are back with their sixth album. Because of changing the studio from Woodhouse to Tico Tico, the guys from Finland sound way rougher again. They already indicated that with the bonus track on the Digipak-version of "Frozen". The different location didn't change the music though. Their name still guarantees handmade, melancholic Metal, that sounds extremely dynamic because of interplays of acoustic guitars and heavy riffs. Furthermore, the continuing mid-tempo invites to permanet headbanging. For that reason, and the simplicity of the song structure, more and more, this Finnish band reminds me on the new Metallica, although the typically Finnish depressivity always shines through. Just the fact that "Frozen" contained of more hits, makes this, a little more melodic album, appear unsignificantly less attractive.

Nobody does loss and depression as well as sentenced. And crimson serves as another great example. Songs like bleed in my arms and no more beating as one are some of my favorites with infectious choruses and great riffs that make you want to raise your fist. Another one my favorites is dead moon rising while it doesn't stray too far from the standard sentenced formula of solid riffs and a infectious chorus. The river is one song that shakes things up a bit a slow somber number about alcahol addiction its great. Killing me killing you, home in despair and fragile are also great songs. Their best album in my opinion
