The primitive structures and melodies give this album an unparalleled trance-like quality, by taking an early Paradise Lost influence (mixed with others such as Kent and Slowdive) and forming a completely unique sound and atmosphere.
The majority of the vocal duties were carried out in his signature death-growl style by Mikael _kerfeldt of Opeth, while Jonas Renkse delivered the clean vocal passages, that he is known for today, on the ethereal track, ?Day_ (also showing their broad influence by acts such as The Cure). Jonas also played drums on the album.
?Brave Murder Day_ was recorded at Unisound, Sweden, in July 1996, and was engineered by Dan Swan_ (Marduk, Dark Funeral & Dissection among many others).
This re-issue also includes the ?Sounds of Decay_ EP from 1997, again featuring Mikael _kerfeldt on vocals, and delivering yet more quality groundbreaking gothic/doom metal in a similar style to ?Brave Murder Day_.
