Draconian Times

C+

If not for their pompous monster-movie vocal grunting, the virtuoso Metallica mimics Paradise Lost might be halfway stomachable. On Draconian Times, classical organ, lush double-guitar interplay, and monkish funeral-choir backup save their otherwise pro forma gloom metal from staying stuck in the sludge pit. But even these prettier passages feel pretentious.
