Chock-full of bonus tracks and remastered, the debut album from Austria's metal newcomers of the year for 2007, The Sorrow's Blessings From A Blackened Sky is surely one of the most engaging listens to come out of the genre in years. "Killswitch Engage are definitely a band that we all respect and like," frontman MÃ¤tze confirms, without neglecting The Sorrow's true musical roots. "Our real influences are musicians such as Pantera, Machine Head, In Flames, At The Gates, as well as Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, MÃ¶tley CrÃ¼e and Skid Row." That's what earned The Sorrow the "demo of the month" award in the February issue of Metal Hammer, as well as great reviews and comparisons to some of the metal underground's best-known acts. The album is produced by Toni Meloni (Estate, Caliban) and supported by a video for "Knights of Doom" (200,000 views on YouTube).
