On Thorns I Lay - Orama (2003)


Greek gothic death/doom. Epic and melodic, with beauty-and-the-beast vox and lots of keyboards. Composition-wise, the songs are generally linear, and there's lots of tempo variation throughout, to the point where it should sound scatterbrained, but every change just feels so natural. There's also a certain level of cheesiness, for sure -- kinda goes with the territory -- but Orama truly is an album unto itself.

Track listing:
1. Atlantis I
2. The Song of the Sea
3. Oceans
4. In Heaven's Island
5. Atlantis II
6. Atlantis III
7. If I Could Fly
8. Aura
9. The Blue Dream
