This album is dark man, but this darkness has life, like some kind of ugly/beautiful coma pillow. Fans of doom metal of the "gothic" variety (pretty keyboards weaving throughout the riffs that go from slow to slower to almost not slow) have heard this before, but somehow these guys make it their own. I feel compelled to play it over and over again, I keep hearing new things. Gruff vocals are pitched slightly from time to time, going from rumble to screech with a touch of clean, which keeps things vital. Sounds great at 3 in the morning...the cover of the album conveys this vibe nicely. The bonus Candlemass cover is a nice indication of where they're coming from as well-it's always good to see a band salute the root. Recommended for those who like to take baths in the dark, or maybe just those who would rather sleep than talk to most people.

I bought this due to a friend's recommendation and am happy to say that I'm very pleased.I normally dont find much appeal in doom metal, most of the bands within the genre have the tendancy to drag the music and by the time it really gets anywhere I've lost interest.

Swallow The Sun takes a bit of a different approach, adding a bit of melody and synth atmosphere to the mix.The end result is like a bit of a journey of despair and desolation.The clean vocals are quite good but are used sparringly, the harsh growls remain dominant.The songs have some great hooks as well, especially in the songs Silence Of The Womb and Hold Your Woe.

My only complaint (which is more of a major pet peeve of mine) is the lack of complete lyrics in the booklet.The pictures are nice and all, but you can get more out of music like thsi when you can relate the words to it.It only have snippets of the lyrics, and you dont quite know what part of the song the lyric belongs to.

In any case, highly recommended for Doom fans or anyone who generally likes atmospheric, crsuhing metal.This is kinda what Amorphis might have sounded like if they didnt venture down the poppy route.

The doom metal genre is full of a few juggernauts and a lot of "well, they tried really hard"s. Early Katatonia, Paradise Lost, Novembers Doom, etc...are among an elite group that absolutely dominated the doom metal genre, taking it from mediocrity to one of the highest forms of art. 'The Morning Never Came' is perhaps a victim to its timing rather than its quality. Doom Metal's height was in the 90s and that height wasn't even particularly high (unless you count Black Sabbath from the 70s but they were one of a kind in their day). Swallow The Sun came along in 2003 with a sound clearly influenced by the great doom metal bands of the past but offering a new perspective on them. While the gruff vocals aren't quite on par with the genre defining groups, 'The Morning Never Came' excels in every other possible fashion. There isn't a bad track on the album, there are great tracks and a few "omg I'm going to be replaying this the rest of the week" tracks. If you love music with a twinge of depression mixed in then this album should be on your shelf, like, yesterday.

Fans of My Dying Bride should now begin salivating...okay, now that's just gross! Swallow the Sun's most obvious influence is that of their soon-to-be legendary Doom Metal pioneers My Dying Bride (sans the violin). There are keyboards washing across the background of most of the songs here, the occasional piano section adding a nice variation in texture, but the guitars are the driving force overall. Many of the tracks would feel right at home on My Dying Bride's "The Light at the End of the World" or their following album "The Dreadful Hours." The vocals range from snarling Death Metal inflections to clean vocals; there are even times when the vocals are layered with all the variations intact, screeching Black Metal vocalizations mixed with Death Metal snarling that then switches to clean vocals. The exeptional track "Hold This Woe" is a superb example. This sort of suspended expectation is refreshing. The production value on this CD is excellent, the guitars high in the mix but never at any time burying the other music. The result is that the guitars serve equally as added atmosphere as they also provide direction. There are only snippets of lyrics provided in the packaging, though I visited their website and found complete lyrics for four of the songs here. With the types of vocals they employ it would have been nice to have all the lyrics provided within. Regardless, the music and texture of this album is one of absolute darkness and beauty, oftentimes existing simultaneously. The American release has the bonus cover song "Solitude" from Doom Metal forefathers Candlemass. Swallow the Sun has been heralded as a potential second-coming of Doom Metal. I certainly hope so. "The Morning Never Came" is certainly a promising statement for the future of the genre.

Not bad, not bad at all. Tempos and drive are mostly doom-like, but plenty of catchy bits and changes to make things more interesting. (Much better song-writing than most doom albums I've heard!) Lots of great guitar crunch, death vocals and awesome use of synth and piano in a metal context. In fact, great playing all-round, nothing to criticise there. It reminds me of Rapture's "Songs for the withering", except slower tempos - that's another one for the "must have" list. Hey, there's even a few teasing moments of clean vocals for Opeth-style fans, in fact I would have given an extra 1/2 star for even more of that! :) Buy with confidence!
