    THE FIRST AND ONLY interview with Lee Morris since his departure from Paradise Lost way back in 2004…yes, it has been that long! Since the official band statement back in 2004 which cited “personal and musical differences,” only Paradise Lost’s side of the story has ever been told – that is until now.

    "DOWNCAST DETERMINATION...GRINDING GUITARS...CREATION'S TEARS' FUTURE MAY NOT BE QUITE AS GLOOMY AS THEIR PAST."

    Steve Beebee (Kerrang!)

    "A STRIKING DEBUT! CREATION'S TEARS MAKE QUITE AN ENTRANCE."

    Natasha Scharf (Metal Hammer UK)

    "OFTEN IMITATED, CREATION'S TEARS HAVE BROUGHT A FRESH TWIST, THE RIGHT INGREDIENTS AND THE EXECUTION TO DO THE GENRE JUSTICE. A VERY PROMISING DEBUT."

    Joy Lasher (Terrorizer)

    "Effective and affecting. Make a note of the name.

    Malcolm Dome (Classic Rock)

    "PLEASINGLY DIVERSE AND TOTALLY DEVOID OF THE SACCHARINE SYNTHS WHICH SWAMP ALL TOO MANY ALBUMS OF THE GENRE."

    Greg Moffitt (Decibel)

    "THE ENTIRE ALBUM DISPLAYS ENERGY AND PASSION. METHODS TO END IT ALL IS A COLLECTION OF MUSICAL GEMS."

    Dirk Zimmermann (Legacy)

    "This Irish quartet may have the pedigree to attain the heights of the acts that influenced them."

    (8 Powerpoints) Ross Barker (Powerplay)

    "Creation's Tears' debut album is a fresh breeze with strong songs and memorable melodies in the vein on Anathema & Paradise Lost. Haunting and beautiful!"

    Jens Bogren (Producer: God Forbid, Eluveitie, Draconian)

    "These heroes of the dour make a compulsive argument in favour of all things doom and gloom with their glossy, melodic melancholy."

    (8/10) Giles Moorhouse (ROCK SOUND)

    "In the ten years Metalireland has been going, I've yet to see an unsigned band reach for quite so much as this. The effort is staggering."

    (4.1/5) Ciaran Tracey (aka Earl Grey - Metalireland)

    "I just heard it and I HAD to play it."

    Rory McConnell (BBC RADIO 1 (NI))

    "Without doubt the most epic and promising debut album I've ever had the pleasure to work on. This band are definately one to watch!"

    Mark Mynett (Producer / Engineer: Paradise Lost, Godsized, Guitars: Kill II This, City of God)

    "Methods To End It All is easily one of the picks for the annual best of list. This is one that you have to set aside what you read about it and find out for yourself. You will be glad you did!"

    (4/5) Scott Ward (SeaOfTranquility.org)

    "Creation's Tears are a very promising act that sound like Goth Metal should sound!"

    Jens Bogren (Producer: Opeth, Amon Amarth, Katatonia, Paradise Lost, Soilwork)

    "ASIDE FROM BEING AN EXCELLENT GUITARIST, REYNOLDS ACQUITS HIMSELF ADMIRABLY AT THE MIC - CREATION'S TEARS HAVE HIT THE GROUND RUNNING.

    Greg Moffitt (Decibel)

    "The haunting guitar work of Reynolds is riveting while his gravely voice brings out just the right amount of sorrow."

    (4/5) Scott Ward (SeaOfTranquility.org)

    "Creation's Tears' Methods To End It All is a very good opinion on how gothic rock/metal should be played, with emotion, melody and desired amounts of heaviness. A good option for everyone in the scene with both an open mind and ear."

    (8/10) (Metalstorm.net)

    "Accessibly morose...a keen sense of melody...check out the hooks. Methods To End It All is a winner across the board."

    (8/10) David E. Gehlke (Blistering.com)

    "Methods To End It All never gets boring; Creation's Tears have a lot of talent and originality."

    (4/5) Brian Block (SeaOfTranquility.org)

    "Vigorous, vital, strong and fresh! The songs are as strong as an ox; accurately arranged and free from ballast. Driving riffs, powerful choruses, no kitsch, no nonsense."

    (8/10) Diggi (Heavy-Metal.de)

    "Creation's Tears give you a melodic metal treat that will appeal to wide array of people who have two things in common; an appreciation of great heavy metal and the ability to take in the deeper aspects of this band's lyrical content."

    (4/5) Scott Ward (SeaOfTranquility.org)

    "The quality of their songwriting, and the quality of their execution, means that the right ears should at least hear it...Those right ears should start with every metaller in Ireland."

    (4.1/5) Ciaran Tracey (aka Earl Grey - Metalireland)

    "Methods To End It All is consistent and there are NO bad songs on it. It will appeal to a wide audience! I can't compare this band to anyone!"

    David Castillo (Producer / Engineer: Eluveitie, Opeth, Bloodbath, INME, Klimt 1918)

    "Some bands do fit into a certain category but this is not one of them."

    (4/5) Scott Ward (SeaOfTranquility.org)

    "Don't count Creation's Tears into the clone department."

    (8/10) (Metalstorm.net)

    "Thankfully this debut is anything but an exercise in nostalgia and is in fact a dynamic gothic rock album that compares favourably to the likes of Katatonia."

    (8 Powerpoints) Ross Barker (Powerplay)

    "A RATHER EXCELLENT DEBUT...SOUNDS AMAZING...A REAL PROFESSIONAL PIECE OF WORK. DEFINITELY PICK UP A COPY OF THIS...IT'S WORTH YOUR WHILE"

    James Loveday (BBC Radio 1 Introducing)

    "Unlike the many of the frontrunning masses of the gothic metal genre, Creation's Tears choose to maintain their identity by not using keyboards, orchestras or an abundance of effects loops."

    (5/5) Tracy Ball (alt NOIR)
