Draconian are a gothic, doom, death band and this is their fourth full-length album. Over the years, female vocals have become more prominent to the point that they've gone from supportive atmosphere to starring role. Lisa Johansson takes center stage with her mournful, dreamy, clean vocals almost as often as growler Anders Jacobsson does. Over the course of the CD,...

Usually stuff of this ilk without the initials "M.D.B." accompanying it does not get any attention from me; but Where Lovers Mourn is a grandiose (in a good way) dirge of an album.
