Entertainment Reviews:

Spin - p.86
"[They sound] like a pro forma emo-fed hard-rock band with some likably silly Euro-doom flourishes."
Alternative Press - p.90
3.5 stars out of 5 -- "When the band are a little more concrete and less spooky, the results are especially compelling....Ultimately successful in its blending of melody and muscle."
Billboard - "[T]he album represents a move away from the band's heavy metal history toward a more pop-friendly sound."

Product Description:

Audio Mixer: Neal Avron.
Recording information: NRG Studios, North Hollywood, CA; The Lair Studio, Los Angeles, CA.
Photographer: David Roemer.
Finnish goth rockers His Infernal Majesty's seventh studio album was built around one of pop music's most ubiquitous themes, heartache. Breakups have been throwing artists into alternating fits of feverish work and hopeless despondency since time immemorial, resulting in both great works and self-absorbed descents into bloated narcissism. Screamworks: Love in Theory and Practice is a little bit of both. The group's penchant for melodramatic late-'80s/early-'90s melodic alt-rock in the vein of New Model Army, Dream Theater, and Mission UK serves as an efficient yet predictable vehicle to deliver the primal scream that is heartbreak, and songs like "In Venere Veritas," "Heartkiller," and "Katherine Wheel" deliver the goods with solid hooks and appropriate gravitas. Overall, the material sits within the band's canon well enough to please longtime fans, and listeners looking for some kind of middle ground between Evanescence, late-period QueensrËśche, and Fall Out Boy will more than likely find a few wicked gems to hang their heads to. ~ James Christopher Monger
