one of the best Doom/Gothic bands after Theatre Of Tragedy (Not considering their last album)

From: ruken Date: July 18, 2001 at 19:07
Excellent. Not much more to say about it, other than the new Theater of Tragedy SUCKS. Music like this is what gothic/doom is all about.

From: The Boz Date: December 29, 2001 at 9:07
Excellent album! Elements of Nightwish and Therion combine to make a dark and lovely album. Floor Jansen's voice blew me away.

From: feeble! Date: February 8, 2002 at 11:56
dude,this album fucking Rocks!!!!!!

From: eyerock36 Date: March 30, 2002 at 9:59
This is a very powerful album, with beauty, drama, tension & release, passion...the 'beauty and the beast' type vocals are some of the best in the genre....this album is definitely worth the fifteen bucks it costs....'Follow in the Cry' is one of the best songs I've ever heard....I couldn't say enough good things about this album. These artists should be given credit for having a brilliant vision of what their music can do and succeeding in bringing it about. VERY ENJOYABLE!

This is easily some of the best 'Beauty & the Beast' metal on the circuit today. Its an absolute must purchase for all fans of this style, and for anyone who wants to know what this style of music is all about, After Forever is the definitive place to start. Its also one of the most diverse sounding discs in this style as well and should appeal to many of the progressive metal fans as well as metal fans.

From: Eternity Date: August 17, 2003 at 9:46
This, my pale skined freinds, is it. the top of the Gothic Metal world. After Forever is symply the best. A pure voice from the enchantress Floor and a choir of agonizied screams from mark combine with a choir of lost souls to form a masterpeice of suffering, disire, lust, and embrace. My overall rating is a blood chilling, bone breaking slit my rist from pleasure 10. And as a personal note to the band keep the sorrow coming, as I look forward to a long journey of macabre and pleasure from your

From: Revskie Date: December 22, 2004 at 9:15
