Two years following the release of their critically-acclaimed debut album “Unrevealed Secrets Of Ruin”, Dutch sludge/post-metal quintet The Fifth Alliance now return with their second album “Death Poems”, which is set for release on CD on October 31st through Consouling Sounds.
Following the much-deserved praise that The Fifth Alliance received for their 2013 debut album “Unrevealed Secrets Of Ruin”, the Dutch five-piece now return with their second album titled “Death Poems”.
Powerful and dark, “Death Poems” consists of four new tracks that masterfully blend gritty and harsh sludge with emotive, gloomy post-metal moments. With this record, The Fifth Alliance have taken a significant step forward and developed a more powerful and emotionally intense sound, especially in the vocal delivery of Silvia Berger. There is something deeply disturbing and touching about the singer’s performance as if she is lamenting the loss of a loved one. If you are a fan of doomy, harsh and emotive post-metal, then “Death Poems” is going to be one of your favourite releases of 2015.
