Metal Reviews: Please Deceive Me

Any band can take Dracula and throw metal behind it (see Iced Earth’s excellent Horror Show), but to create a metal album that leans more on the atmospheric side supported by conservative yet accomplished riff work and stellar lyrical content, conveyed in a crisp clean voice that is both soothing and sinister? That is currently the realm of Autumns Eyes.

The Metal Crypt Reviews Please Deceive Me

It blows away most of the Gothic Metal albums out there today. It isn’t often I get to hear something different on my journey as a reviewer and when I do “different” usually equals “crap.” Not so with Please Deceive Me from Autumns Eyes. You can color me highly impressed.

The Metal Crypt

Surrender the Fire is well executed and accomplishes its goal of being creepy and evil. The melodic aspects make it a great jumping off point for people like me, who listen mainly to Power Metal, to explore some of the other genres of metal and to discover a larger world of music.

Kingdom Come

Overall I would say that this is most definitely one to listen to if you’re a fan of bands like Dimmu Borgir. The album even has a cover of their song ‘Mourning Palace’ that, in my opinion, has much better execution than the original.

Surrender The Fire is an amazing symphonic black metal composition that was clearly scrutinized over and carefully arranged so that each sound went in exactly the place it was meant to go.
