Masters In Lunacy, the other album by piano-playing, atmosphere-inducing black metallers GraveSideService, is (sadly) largely the same as their sophomore (I know it's strange to talk about these two in such a backwards chronological manner, but I listened to and reviewed the second one before this one, so bear with me).

Instrumentally speaking, shit is decent. Drums are well-played and creative (with some cool parts thrown around the album) and do keep up with the song. The vocals are OK. They're a bit low in the mix sometimes and lack the real punch, but they're alright. A little more growl, a little less scream and a little more volume and they'd be perfect. The piano is obviously the main component of the music here, and although I'm really, REALLY no piano expert by any means, it's still enjoyable.

Atmosphere is what the music creates, and it's also well done. I hate having to keep using the adjective "well done", but I'm afraid it's the only fitting one. Most of this album is just very average. I commend the band for taking a step forward and using piano and no guitars, but they just don't push the envelope any more than that, and that's my only regret.

7/10
