Hot on the heels of the critically acclaimed Shadows From the Cemetery tape, CEMETERY FOG strike while the iron's hot with a brand-new 12" MLP, Towards the Gates. While the CEMETERY FOG on said cassette was a rumbling 'n' rough-hewn one, the Finnish duo have made a startling progression on Towards the Gates, refining that doomed-out Metal of Death into one that's more mature, majestic, and absolutely mournful. In many ways, the CEMETERY FOG of now bear more than a passing resemblance to the early '90s school of UK doom-death - crushing yet emotive, melodic yet sorrowful, deathly yet graceful - but with an eerie, mystical touch all their own. The band may still be young, but their confidence and ambition are wholly evident across the five tracks of Towards the Gates - and they're just getting started. Jump on the CEMETERY FOG bandwagon now and head Towards the Gates...

This may just surpass Death’s Leprosy as my overall favorite death metal album. It’s magnificent; originality mixes with the old school so well on this epic.
Update: nothing beats Leprosy, but this is my #2. Brian3737
