Review Type: 

Procession is probably the best band in Chile to which the label doom metal might apply. While the melodies presented on To Reap Heavens Apart aren't groundbreaking for the genre, they are quite good and will certainly appeal to fans of doom metal bands such as Voodoo Shock, Solitude Aeturnus and Wall Of Sleep. The vocals by band leader/guitarist Felipe Plaza while by no means mind blowing, have enough heart and melody to make up for the melodramatic flair that can do this sort of music in if done incorrectly. The CD clocks in at just over 43 minutes, and every track, except the 1 intro, is between 6-10 minutes long. This allows the band to expand on their ideas for each track.

On the whole, this is a really good band. If you like Candlemass and you wish more bands sounded like them, this one is for you. To Reap Heavens Apart is one of those CDs that'll have me looking for the band's previous releases. I can't think of a better endorsement than that.
