Samothrace - Life's Trade
Here is my short take on Life's Trade by Samothrace. The first time I listened to this I was not in a good place. I was really down and just feeling bad. So, this was just what I needed (?). It sounds depressing. I didn't want to listen to something fast or happy or even something angry or violent. So as far is slow depressing metalgaze/doom goes, this is top-notch! Or if you were stoned, top-notch! Unfortunately, I am neither stoned nor depressed so it wasn't really doing anything for me this time around. It is a good album, it just falls in that "I need to be in the mood for it" category.
