Ablaze My Sorrow, "If Emotions Still Burn"

This young Swedish quintet's debut is not bad, especially considering the members' ages and the fact that the album was released six whole years ago. Unfortunately, the songs are somewhat convoluted and disorienting. Ablaze My Sorrow seems to play with a lot of heart but little organization. Good riffs aren't revisited enough, there are acoustic passages that seem out of place, and the bass seems to wander too much sometimes. In addition, too much of the music is melody oriented and too high pitched which causes them to stray from good, heavy-hitting groove and weight. Some of the tracks do succeed in making the cut even with all the melody, but generally speaking, this band has not yet become comfortable writing strong music. Just wait, Ablaze My Sorrow have truckloads of potential and they definitely will show it on their sophomore release, The Plague.
