On Thorns I Lay  


Formed in 1992 as Phlebotomy, On Thorns I Lay has, on the course of their five albums, drifted through various styles of atmospheric metal, with the early albums more traditional doomdeath-influenced and the later material more in the post-goth realm. The vocal styles have similarly varied, from mostly male death vocals up to Orama and female soprano vocals taking over as the major style on the later material, though founder/guitarist Stefanos still contributes vocals on the later albums. The band has a unique, somewhat relaxed style to their songwriting, based more on mood and effect rather than in-your-face riffing. Orama appears to be the majority choice for their best album, though the personal opinion here is that Crystal Tears is a shade better. They left their Greek homeland for Romania some time ago, but have since returned to Greece. Their latest album, Egocentric, continues the relaxed gothic stylings of their previous Angeldust effort, and is the first with another new vocalist, Minas.
