Sententia Prima
    A raw but enjoyable stripped-down take on Russian Death/Doom from Doom Architect.
    A cold and moody meditational work from the obscure No More Sorrow In Me.

Still They Pray
    Cough have written an album that ought to keep the die-hards happy enough, whilst at the same time embracing a certain amount of change.
 cdimgBleak Silver Streams
    Lethian Dreams take a dreamy and mellow approach to the Gothic style, and this is a decent, melancholic album that will especially appeal to those who those who enjoy the melodic end of the Death/Doom spectrum.

The Concept of Escape (EP)
    Soliloquium's early The Concept Of Escape release offers some interesting music and a clear projection of what they're about.
 cdimgReborn In Blasphemy (Demo)
    Gargoyle's demo simply revels in replicating the style and imagery of their influences, on practically a negative budget.
    Moscow's most melancholy sons return with a more Doom-orientated version of their trademark miserable Post-Metal atmosphere.
 cdimgDawn Of The Satanic Age
    Another decent, energetic foray into instrumental Stoner/Doom from Clouds Taste Satanic.
