One of the best reasons for getting rid of a bunch of the things you own is that you can then take better care of the things you keep.Brent Simmons
I don’t know what convinced me to listen to Order Divine. I don’t even remember when I added it to my new music playlist. But since I started listening to it last week, I keep going back to it again and again.
Hinayana has a similar sound to somewhere between older Insomnium and In Mourning without the clean vocals. Definately worth a couple of listens.
I picked up In Mourning’s first release, Shrouded Divine, from Best Buy because the sticker on the wrapper said they sounded like Opeth. While I don’t agree with that, I am very glad it convinced me to pick up the album. Shrouded Divine was a great album, and each of their subsequent albums just got better.
Afterglow is an album that when I listened to it the first two or three times, I was disappointed. At the time, I did not feel it was as good as the previous release Weight of Oceans.
Early last year I was shuffling through a playlist of In Mourning and kept coming across songs I really liked and thought they must have come from Weight of Oceans only to look and see that they are from Afterglow. After this happened a few times I went back and just listened to Afterglow on its own and damn has it grown on me into a great album.
I still don’t know if its better than Weight of Oceans, but I would say it is at least as good.
