Sojourn will reveal many secrets and subtleties that you didn’t even know existed within melodic death metal. It colors very liberally outside the lines such bands as Insomnium, Omnium Gatherum, and Noumena have established and others imitated, and it does it so convincingly that it’ll be hard to go back.
‘Sojourn‘ is an album that should not sit in the shadows. It is a grand listening experience for those fans of orchestral metal, and a unique listen for those that are fans of the classic Gothenburg metal. A full piece that could easily accompany a film in it’s full length.
Sojourn is a remarkably strong album. Neither too heavy-handed in its symphonic approach nor guilty of just using washes of string pad behind generic melodeath riffs, it achieves its goals of being a majestic yet indisputably heavy album. How Meadows End have gone this long without much coverage is beyond me, because Sojourn is a proper beast of an album. I promise that’s not a pun on the cover art. Okay. It might be.
