Patience is a Virtue, and Time runs out, or so they say. Who are they precisely? And why are we so time poor that we feel the need to skip a song when it doesn’t fit into our time frame? Are we Virtuous enough to not listen to the statement an artist is trying to make? Are we simply seeking a riff or a moment in music that makes us feel something special and keep listening to an album? Yes, we are both, for it is that that makes us Human.


Woe Unto Me, for the less patient, may make you want to skip a song or two to find out exactly what they are on about or get some kind of feel for what is going on, and sadly you won’t get that. Brutal as a fish left gasping for air on the bank of a river one minute, as gentle as the sunset over the same river the minute, the Crows have taken the carcass away and nothing is as it seems or was.


Doom you were after, Death it seems hopped on board for a ride, a Saxophone may or may not be involved, clean vocals, crushing riffs, back to vocals that are tortured and full of pain. Patience now becomes the Virtue. You are involved.


This album is an act in two parts, the second act being another test. Are you prepared for a more acoustic version of what has come before us already. Yes it involves a change of such magnitude that even the Gods may cry, but you need to be patient. Trust me.

Recommendation: Time may be the only thing that puts you off. Make some time.


Rating:  3.5/5
