Ablaze In Hatred

Ablaze In Hatred is a standard Finnish doomdeath band, along the lines of Swallow The Sun, taking their cues from bands such as (early) Katatonia. There's not a lot of variation on their Deceptive Awareness debut, the tempos are mostly slow with drawn-out keyboards and sparse guitar riffs. They are certainly heavy, though like others in the so-called funeral doom genre, their heaviness comes more from mood and pacing rather than crushing guitars. Not a groundbreaking effort, but a solid doomdeath/funeral doom debut.
