There were times when Crematory was very popular among goth/doom people, especially in Europe and especially in the middle of the '90s. “Tears Of Time” was released on the band's arguably the most popular album “Illusions” and the song itself became – again arguably – their most popular song ever. Well, at least I've seen Crematory two times live, and “Tears Of Time” was always the right song to close their gigs.
The bass line is super primitive, no challenge there, though I added a couple of notes the original bass player didn't play on the record. Sometimes it doesn't really matter if the part is interesting. The song is very good and it's all that matters.
