The Old Dead Tree  


What a great band name. This French group formed in 1997, survived the suicide of one of its core members in 1999, and have prospered since signing to Season Of Mist Records in 2003. Their third album (The Water Fields, released in 2007) is an excellent slice of melancholic, somber, sem-gothic melodic death metal, somewhat like a cross between ? and the more recent ? releases. The vocals feature a clean, mournful croon, punctuated by death growls, the two styles intermingling quite well, while the lyrics are clearly of an introspective, somber nature. This is a diverse, mature album, one of the better albums in this style in quite some time.
