The keyboards... the album is flat-out loaded with keyboards.
Matt Stoessel
The vocalist sounds a lot like Morten Veland (Sirenia, ex-Tristania), which is a very good thing.

This will possibly be one of the best doom metal cd's to come out for a while!

First off, let me say that if you are not in a depressive mood before you hear this cd, then you will be after. This will possibly be one of the best doom metal cd's to come out for a while! A must have for any Doom metal fan(or even someone who is just getting into this type of style)! The music is so crafted and put together that it will reach your soul and make it bleed. The only bad thing about this album is that the drums are programed, but still are so blended it doesn't sound like it, the sound is still perfect. The vocals are like the lyrics themselves "Dark", They switch between Black, Death, and Clean. The keyboards are Epic and remind me of Dimmu Borgir and/or Tangerine Dream in the movie "Legend". The Guitars through most of the album are heavy and very doomy, the clean guitars remind me alot of Anathema, where you feel like you are in a dreamlike state, which they also use alot of Delay.
All the songs average out to be around 9 mins long. I would recommend this cd to any fans of early Katatona, My Dying Bride, Opeth, Anathema, Daylight Dies, Schaliach, Dimmu Borgir, or the alike.

I really do love this album. Every song is quite different. This would be one of the coolest bands out there if they had more than one kind of singing. This is more doom metal than black. I don't know if I've ever heard such a keyboard/synth driven sound before. The keyboards and synths are EXTREMELY atmospheric. Do NOT judge this album by the cover art - you can get Oceanborn's, Vision's, or Beyond the Veil's atmosphere out of this album. The cover art is actually quite boring. It does set the modd for a very depressing album, like Lake of Sorrow, but only the intro actually fits that cover art. You'll feel like your best friend is dying during each song. Its such a sad sound that Forest Stream plays. To a certain degree, this is like a slower Graveworm, only not as heavy, either.
The production is absolutely amazing. It isn't recorded at Finnvox or anything (I think the band's Russian), but it will blow your mind.
The keyboards... the album is flat-out loaded with keyboards. Don't compare this to "When the Aurora Falls" or a Children of Bodom album. These are mostly atmospheric keyboards, not simple keyboard notes that sound like an advanced guitar.
Songs vary in length a lot. The longer songs don't get boring. I think the longest one is just over 12 minutes and there's one about 11:30. There are 2 or 3 "mid-tros", but I don't think any of the SONGS are under 7:00.
The first track is about 3:30 and is a phenomenal intro. It starts off with beautiful keyboards and then starts to sound like Royal Hunt's Intervention (the 14 minute version). There are vocals, but no drums in this track.

Well... this band from Russia sure makes good, epic doom music. All the songs seem to narrate a story. One can listen to this from the start to the end and it all seems like reading an epic, taking you down different stages and letting you feel and experience each and every moment.
Songs are well crafted. The double-bass kick in at the right moments and so do the piano parts. Very soothing at times, and suddenly erupting with deep growls. This album is full of these.
I checked out some of their samples first and was so blown away that finally I own one now.

One doesn't think much about doom metal when they think of Russia, the former antagonist of the Western Hemisphere. Well, those folks should listen to Forest Stream. A three-member band with a drum machine (which is okay because I use a drum machine :) ), a powerful vocalist, and excellent guitar and keyboard work is what makes up this act. The band writes incredibly long, but NEVER boring, songs. The vocalist sounds a lot like Morten Veland (Sirenia, ex-Tristania), which is a very good thing. He also does some clean singing. The band is composed of 'Sonm the Darkest' (vocals, keys/programming), 'Wizard Omin' (guitars), and 'Silent Anth' (bass). The disc features nine songs and is slightly over an hour in length. Since CDNOW doesn't provide it, here's the track list:
1. Autumn Elegy (3:53)
2. Legend (8:08)
3. Last Season Purity (12:16)
4. Snowfall (9:55)
5. Mel Kor (8:51)
6. Whole (5:16)
7. Black Swans (10:34)
8. Winter Solstice (8:28)
9. Steps of Mankind (1:37)
I don't know if every version has this, but there's a bonus disc that comes with it, with nine sampler songs from Earache Records. Among these are demo versions of Forest Stream's "Mel Kor" and "Black Swans," along with songs from Lunaris, Rakoth, Ephel Duath (2 songs each), and Without Face (1 song). Good stuff to say this really isn't a very expensive CD. The only downside is that there are some SLIGHT production flaws, but nothing like an old Emperor or Dimmu Borgir CD. It's just that the guitars don't sound as clean as they could.
