PALE DIVINE “Painted Windows Black “

“Painted Windows Black
(Shadow Kingdom)
I’m a huge sucker for doom metal. Perhaps even more so for the kind of epic doom that Candlemass has come to represent but I can also appreciate the doom metal of bands like Trouble, Revelation, Dream Death etc. The more rootsy, earthy kind doom that has more in common with early Black Sabbath with Ozzy than the Heaven and Hell- Dio era. Pale Divine does bring up those kinds of early Sabbath vibes. More 70s than 10s so to speak. I don’t know if this is that much doom now that I think of it. Perhaps more Britain in the 80s and NWOBHM in spirit than anything else. Any which way this is some really cool stuff. I had very little hopes for anything good but this turned out to be so much better than I had anticipated. There is an epic side to this that I can appreciate all the way to my grave. This I will keep returning to for a long time. Anders Ekdahl
