In Vain - Ænigma






















Band: In Vain
Album: Ænigma
Country: Norway


Release date: March 8, 2013
Label: Indie Recordings
Genre: Progressive Death Metal
Existed since: 2003




Review:
Another contender for top albums of 2013 is norwegian death prog metallers In Vain, as with their second release come up w a truly great album, filled with strong songs. The languages on this album is in both norwegian n english. In the last song,  Floating On The Murmuring Tide, they use an instrument that i cant say i heard be used in death metal before, clarinet. It rly adds nice, sore sound to the melody.
The closest influences i can think of is black metal bands Borknagar, some Enslaved, n a pinch of norwegian punk-rock. Lars Are "Lazare" Nedland of Borknagar n Solefald is contributing on the album.

Highly Recommended.
