          Amen to that. I’m all for people having different taste, but shoegaze puts me right to sleep.

    surprisingly enough, the gents seem to disagree with you, AMG. From their Facebook (I checked for a song, to see how grating the vocals really were):

    “Dies Irae (Official): Dies Irae have given a release that will leave many undecided as to whether it is a great album or an exceptional one but Secret Veils of Passion will definitely evoke a positive reaction of some degree in most and definitely should be sought and experienced.”

    This is my review of the album, let’s open our minds.

    I saw the special edition artbook and I have to say that it is the best piece of work I’ve ever seen in a long time, I can believe the band just did 60 copies, this demonstrates professionalism and desire to do things. 

    “Want”, will surely be surprised. The opening of the album it is a Jazz influence interlude also atmospheric and has the enough intensity that will leave you wonder. Is this a Metal band?; Since first hearing the answer will come to your mind is not. It looks more like an experimental sound, a band that mixes Jazz to rock and cannot be classified as Metal sound. 

    Two songs that deserve more attention is: “e7en” and “night”, this two great songs lead me to a passage of deep contemplation that only happens when I listen to classical music and alpha frequency music. 

    Dies Irae really deserves more attention, but i think they must remain unknown (underground). Because when a band becomes big, the essence loses significance and loses the reason for making music; do not misunderstand me, please. This guys do not know the potential and creativity they have, they moved a little bit outside the typical Swedish sound, to a sound more of theirs ,that’s the reason this guys will be more recognized in the world, the only thing they need is patience of the audience. 

    This album is a really good bought, especially if you are in progressive and post- metal bands. 

    Secret veils of passion it’s really interesting, mixing elements of Dark- Doom, Melodeath, progressive, and lot of 70’s jazz music. Sometimes reminding Cynic, but with the difference of less twin guitar heroism and a better work in musical structure and feeling. 

    This is for a non-judgmental ear, and balanced minds, this kind of music goes beyond the genre so I challenge you to listen it.
