US based doom metal band Chalice of Suffering have worked hard on their debut release, and it shows. Employing flute and bagpipes as additional instruments to paint the canvas of their sorrowful music, Chalice of Suffering have brought to life an excellent rendition of life's inevitable miseries, but they have done it with class and grace. With members of Nangilima, Wandering Oak, and We Are Legion adding their experience to John McGovern's vision, the final product leaves nothing to be desired. The gently wafting music is punctuated by soul-tearing melodies, and the additional instruments coupled with the atmospheric melancholy, just takes it to a different level.
One can actually feel different shades of grey as the music oscillates from black doom to glimmers of white hope that uplift the proceedings, mirroring life and its vagaries. The crushing death/doom music foundation gives it strength, the courage to go on, despite the reflection of tragedies, but all in all, this is what makes it beautiful - without darkness there can be no light. 'For You I Die' is the ultimate expression of moving, emotive, near-sentient doom metal music for the harrowed souls.
