Unholy - the Second Ring of Power

Album: the Second Ring of Power
Genre: Doom Metal
Country of Origin: Finland
Year: 1994

Track Listing:

1. the second ring of power
2. languish for bliss
3. lady babylon
4. neverending day
5. dreamside
6. procession of black doom
7. covetous glance
8. air
9. serious personality disturbance and deep anxiety

this is the second album from cult doomsters Unholy, and probably my personal fave. i've never been able to sum up their sound very well (and there are no more good reviews of them on the interweb...), so here's a list of things to expect:
-mesmerizing atmosphere
-crushing and fucked up vocals
-even more fucked up female vocals

i've had this CD for years and listened to a lot of music in this genre, and nothing else really sounds like this. worth a spin if only to hear something you probably won't hear again.
