Mirror Of Deception

Germany's Mirror Of Deception has been around for some time, forming in the early nineties and releasing several demos in their formative years, along with two EPs and two albums. Mirrorsoil, the band's first full-length album released in 2001, is a decent traditional doom album, not really expanding the boundaries of the genre but yet still with enough variation and personality to avoid the clone tag. The vocals are a bit understated -- while not possessing the greatest of range, the voice does fit the music well, and is a welcome respite from the overly histrionic high-pitched vocals of many a European band. Again, these guys aren't radically different than other modern doom bands, but fans of the genre will surely want to give them a listen.
