Mist and the Morning Dew, The


The Mist and the Morning Dew [Re-release]

Year: 2005
Format: CD
Label: Vendlus
Genre: [Melodic Rock/Folk Metal]
Overall Rating: 4.5
Music: 6.5
Production: 3.0

The Mist and the Morning Dew's self-titled debut album sees a re-release through Vendlus Records. Unfortunately the original tapes were lost and thus remastering of the album was impossible. Nonetheless, "it's the music that counts, not the production" as T.M.A.T.M.D. assures.

The music is quite a nice blend of melodic rock and folk rock with tender vocals of Veera Muhli. The songs contain a nice atmospheric feel thus giving the impression of dreamy soundscapes (mostly the melodies are melancholic). However, this album isn't particularly special but more like an adequate melodic folk rock album (the songs are rather frivolous, although 'The Mist and the Morning Dew' has its moments).

The biggest problem this album has is its production, which is of poor quality. 'The Mist and the Morning Dew' contains some clips and occasional distortion. Also the levels could have been more balanced (occasionally the vocals got buried in the mix). In addition, the mix could have been better in many ways (for example, the cymbals need work and the guitar could have had more clarity).

In case you have missed the original release of 'The Mist and the Morning Dew' and aren't that picky about the production, you might find this re-release worth checking out... With a better production this album would be passable, but as such it definitely marks out some potential listeners.

There's a sample of "Repentance" on the Mist of the Morning Dew website for you to listen.
