The second 12" album by The Fifth Alliance, ghostly post-hardcore hailing from the Netherlands released on vinyl by WOOAAARGH, Dingleberry Records, Smithsfoodgroup DIY, Momentum Collective, Solitary Wolf Records, Grains Of Sand Records and Vinylaceton.
Powerful and dark, Death Poems consists of four tracks that masterfully blend gritty and harsh sludge with emotive, gloomy post-metal moments. With this record, The Fifth Alliance have taken a significant step forward and developed a more powerful and emotionally intense sound, especially in the vocal delivery of Silvia Berger. There is something deeply disturbing and touching about the singer’s performance as if she is lamenting the loss of a loved one. If you are a fan of doomy, harsh and emotive post-metal, then this album is going to be for you.
