With an increased emphasis on Hammond C3 organ and keyboard interplay (courtesy of bass player Wicked Ischianus), songs such as "Condemned To Darkness" and the lurking "Apophis" augment the high-wire vocals of Varpula, who has further established himself as one of the most distinctive vocalists in traditional metal. The melody-driven "Solomon's Key" and NWOBHM-inspired "Horns" recall an era where actual songwriting would make or break a band. The graceful closing title track also offers up a new angle from MAUSOLEUM GATE, showcasing lush textures and atmospheric acoustic guitar work. A must-have for any and all traditional metal aficionados, "Into a Dark Divinity" proves MAUSOLEUM GATE are one of the scene's best new true metal torchbearers. Singular, alluring and able to captivate audiences of all varieties, MAUSOLEUM GATE represent a new front in authentic vintage metal. Sophomore slump be damned - MAUSOLEUM GATE are the real deal.
