The debut full-length from Greek band Automaton is weighty, sludgy, coffin-lid-slamming Doom perfection.

Council Of Tanith : Council Of Tanith

Is it really worth a listen?

Originating from Dublin, Ireland and formed in 2007, Council of Tanith plays Doom/Heavy Metal in the traditional way. This self-titled and self-released demo CD from 2009 contains 3 songs, and it presents total of 15 minutes of doomy and heavy music inspired by bands like Black Sabbath, Reverend Bizarre, Warning and Manilla Road.

Technically the release is mostly of good quality for a demo; the instruments are in balance, the sound is in condition, and the mixing is ok as well. The contents are however not coming as close in quality compared to the technical side. There are some good and even quite catchy guitar riffs and melodies here and there, but all in all the material isn't anything particularly original or innovative. The biggest minus comes from the singing, as too often the voice is very much out of tune, and in the end this leads to the songs being not very enjoyable elsewhere than on parts where no singing is present.

Otherwise what we've got here is a doom metal band with some good potential. Demo is always just a demo anyway, so let us hope Council of Tanith surprises us in the future then.
