Entwine Time Of Despair

Finnish Goth-Rockers, Entwine, do what comes naturally on their follow up to the impressive Gone release of a year ago… wither away and die in a sea of sadness. Not exactly, though considering their origins, not the unlikeliest of scenarios, but in fact Entwine, ambitious and six strong, sets forth to further their reputation as one of another Northern lights glimmering through the darkened sky.

Time Of Despair follows closely after their last, satisfied in the significant enough leaps through their edge of "Death" years, their heightened sense of melody and lyrical lament pierce through the weary heart of the listener as they shuffle through the subtlety toward the spark of self-discovery. Time Of Despair, for all its depressive depth, offers a preponderance of imaginative hope in a musically active record that belies the simple depravities otherwise drawn from slow and sinking three-chord riff progressions and eyes to the sky bemoaning.

Not quite the leap of faith taken on the last Tiamat release, however with Time Of Despair all is not lost -- "Stream Of Life," "Safe In A Dream," and “Learn To Let Go" -- selections that take lyrical upturns, searching for a reason. Entwine are bearers of critical thought in what is otherwise a faded memory, occasionally creating a sharp electric shock to cut in and reshape predictability; in short, falling somewhere between the dreary state of a Sentenced or Katatonia while striving for future gains as have a Moonspell or Tiamat.

Recommended listening for manic-depressives or those struck with only the occasional mood swing.
