Amber Tears - Revelations Of Renounced

Had this reviewer been headfast into gothic doom soundscapes (pagan doom according to the band write-up) with no end, maybe then I could lean a word of appreciation to this release. Yet since I have a life that includes the pleasures of listening to a wider musical palette, I regret to be as blunt as deeming this release as “boring” at its best.
Entitled “Revelation of Renounced”, I cannot fail but wonder if these kids took it upon themselves to be isolated in a way that they took all these years to produce an album where all songs sound close to the same? Hailing influences as AMORPHIS, MOONSORROW and the themselves ever-changing ANATHEMA, I am sure that being from Russia does not effect their exposure to further musical influences, so while they claim “pain, desperation, dreams, love and death” as further influences, I dream they save me the pain to hear them again.
