Dissection - The Past Is Alive CD


Like early Darkthrone, it's a little more on the doomy side, utilizing slower and mid-paced tempos more often than faster ones. This music is pretty well-rounded and the musicianship is expressive and slightly above average for this period and style, but without sounding pretentious or showboaty like a lot of other bands. The acoustic pieces are very tasteful as well. There's a certain maturity about these songs that makes them even more enjoyable after repeated listens.
