Swedish heavy metal band Lake of Tears put its footprint in the doom/death metal genre during the '90s.  Their sound expanded and changed as the band grew older and more musically mature, incorporating more instruments as they "further explored  the musical cosmos," according to founding member Daniel Brennare. But it was their ballad, "Forever Autumn," with a title "borrowed" from a Justin Hayward tune, where the group found international success.
