With this album, they've actually managed to carve their own little niche into the genre, managing to create a recognizable sound that they can call their own — an impressive feat for any band, let alone one that is a arguably a relative newcomer although forming in 2001, this album wasn't released until 2 years ago. Micro-reviews, thoughts, pics of my own collection and random utterances are abound.

Opening with the 'Chamber of the Wraith', featuring a slow, repeated ringing of a horror filled bell amongst whispered voices and fearful ambience, Wraith of the Ropes begin to produce a tour de force of Funeral Doom, replete with unstable atmospheres and despondent filled waves of woe crashing over you, submerging your psyche to the very depths of human emotion. Furthermore, We are not responsible for the content to which they link to. The problem with Ada is that it's just so boring. After that it's boring as hell, as the music never really does anything except trudge along like a zombie with a bad leg, doing nothing more than continue to trudge the same ground, making the songs repetitive as hell. Wraith of the Ropes is less drone infused than Torture Wheel, but no less soaked in utter degradation — just take a look at the artwork, eerily portraying a prone, naked young Asian girl, in what seems to be something like an abandoned mental institution.
We do not upload any of the links hosted here but only share them with fans of the genre. Heavily processed vocals dominate the grey horizon, with the bass-filled guitars crashing their tales of horror and terror amongst the noticeable synthesizer work which ranges from a ghostly music-box like effect, to a downright horrifying dredging of mental instability in sonic form.

Wraith of the Ropes is the main musical vehicle of E. The album as a whole is best described as a never ending downward spiral, eroding positivity with each track, each passing second taking you closer to the lowest point of the spiral where the unbearable oceanic pressure of titanic misery squeezes the last breaths out of merriment, stomping the beaten face of optimism as it leaves after the final track. We recommend that if you preview an album and enjoy it that you go out and buy the disc. Well, on that scale, Ada is music to listen to while you plan the demise of the whole planet. This a scary, crushing, horrifying album. These guys certainly know how to work some spiteful emotions into their music, and then to perpetually wear at them until nothing but their skeletal remains are left.

Dennoch kennt es auch heutzutage kaum jemand, was ich nicht so ganz nachvollziehen kann, und deshalb nutze ich diese Zeilen einmal dafür, den Bekanntheitsgrad dieser Veröffentlichung etwas zu steigern.
Not much can be found with regards to the album being based on a real person, but that unknown factor simply adds to the moribund depressive aura which rains down like tarry sludge, suffocating and intoxicating. Ok, on to the music. The unchanging uniformity of the songs and their sound are just too much for one to actually enjoy this as a musical release. I think the same effect must have been employed. The location of the label is quite unique, with the home of Total Rust being Jerusalem.
Granted there are heavy parts with some kickass blastbeats, the vocals completely kill the music by continuing in a monotonous drawl, not to mention that the general flow of the album is basically rehashed every song. I kept the promo sheet that was sent with it, where there's talk of their next album 'Demonic Influence'.

First off, an explanation: Ada is a funeral doom album. The production is very good: all instruments are clear, loud and distinguishable, making this album one of the best journeys into the murderous netherworlds of funeral doom. To date - over 10 years later, it has still yet to materialise; the status of the band is pretty much unknown. It is better to think in terms of the whole album instead of individual songs which, ranging from 9 to 11 minutes, are far from catchy little ditties. We do not support music piracy whatsoever.
The site started out purely as a way of sharing my rarities to like-minded fans, but now for longevity's sake more than anything it is open to new physical metal music bits I've picked up, including new releases and other random shit.
