Gates of Winter – Lux Aeterna (2008)

GatesWinter_LuxAeterna1 out of 5 Stars!

Some decent power/progressive metal music absolutely DESTROYED by horrific growls that are supposed to be considered “vocals.”  The instrumental passages are fairly good, but the “vocal” passages are annoying as all hell. Why bands insist on these types of “vocals” is beyond my understanding. WRETCHED!
