Crematory - Act Seven

Before I go ahead and just rip this thing to shreds, I have to state a couple of things. One, I really, really, don't like this particular brand of pretention, finding it a tad morose, and a trifle boring. Two, Crematory have been doing this sort of thing for a long time now (album seven, of course), and are probably masters of this by now. Lost on me though, as I try to get into, and the opening track does kick things into gear a bit, but it all sounds kinda rehashed from things once done better. The guitar sound being decent, but lost underneath the numerous goth keyboard layers, and those dichotomous death/I'm so sad I could die vocals. I guess if you're a big Moonspell, Evereve or any one of those other "to die for" bands, then this'll be worth your while. Me? I'm ready to yank it throw on some Carnal Forge to clear the atmosphere. Thy cheesy cover doth not help either, I am afraid to say.
