    "...and Other Reasons" is a perfect album for fans of The 3rd and the Mortal and Left Hand Solution.

    Oh, how I wish to hear one more album of this awesome band. So sad... But may be it makes this a perfect doom metal band. No comercial success, no fame, no future.. only mistery, deep feelings and gorgeous somber music. It will never become outdated and will never gets messed up. It will forever remain so fresh and innocent, like a sweet half-forgotten dream. Like a Beatiful Short Story. Too short story...

    Bought this album, when it was released. Some tracks are truly gems. As much Witchhunt Records releases, it was poorly distributed, mostly in the underground circuit but deserved a better fate.

    the person who wrote the bio here seems to have had forgotten to write something about (or atleast mention that) the fact that Elbereth were not always gothic/doom, they used to be doom/death (atleast till the "fallen leaves drift in my soul" demo of 1994) before turning to gothic/doom....http://www.last.fm/music/+noredirect/Elbereth+%28Esp%29

    Dormanth are fucking Awesome. Kind of like Amorphis tales era. Then they changed to In Thousand Lakes and only released one album.

    It's a great band with such beautiful songs... It's a pity they only released one album. I had no idea they were from Spain either! Nice.. I didn't know Spain has such talented metal bands!

    Awesome band from Spain. Underrated yet. Very similar vocals with Cranberries vocalist.
