Graveworm - As the Angels Reach the Beauty (1999)

Holy shit, I forgot how great this record is! Epic, Italian symphonic black/gothic metal -- melodic, tremolo-picked riffs, high-pitched howls, and layer upon layer of REAL, not keyboard-made, orchestral elements. Plus, the bonus track is a Type O Negative cover! (I realize that most of you metal snobs don't like that band, but I fucking love 'em.) If you like frilly metal, this record is tops.

Track listing:
1. A Dreaming Beauty
2. Portrait of a Deadly Nightshade
3. Ceremonial Requiem
4. Nocturnal Hymns
5. Behind the Curtain of Darkness
6. Pandemonium
7. Prophecies in Blood
8. Into the Dust of Eden
9. Graveyard of Angels
10. Christian Woman (bonus)

Wolven screams of deepest hate
