Review by Anna on October 5, 2010.

This is the first full-length of Crowned In Earth. Inside the jewel case one conveniently finds the words “English Doom” sprawled beside the picture of mister Kevin Lawry, the main composer of the band. Thanks, that pretty much sums up this review for me. “Visions Of The Haunted” is a totally straightforward album with decent vocals, good riffs, a nice retro sound, and occasionally the highly welcomed organ accompaniment. The style is utterly cookie-cutter, but nevertheless this gnawing album wouldn’t be a bad choice to zone out to. Didn’t exactly cream my pants with this though, to be honest. Anywho, if you’re in the mood for some Doom à la Traditional, you may consider checking this out.
