Album Review
Reviewed 2006-05-15
Heavy and apocalyptic metal/hardcore but with plenty of melody and quiet sections, Similar to recent Neurosis and Isis. There are touches of hardcore and metalcore but they mostly keep it melodic and heavy without getting very fast or techie. The songs do go through a number of changes and are somewhat prog like. The keyboards are slightly annoying and pointless and beware of a few attepts at actual singing, but the vocals aren’t as bad as most metalcore vocals these days. From Sweden and this is their 4th album.
1. Big, slow, sad and melodic. This reminds me a lot of Neurosis and I think it’s somewhat of a dedication to the singer Nasum who was killed in the tsunami.
2. Clean quiet guitar and drums to begin the track which sounds a lot like mellow Isis. The track does speed up and get heavy.
3. Vocals seem a little forced and the music is just too melodic and poppy along with an attempt at singing.
**4. Quiet intro into a big slow sound. Then the track speeds up and gets heavy. Nice metalcore riff.
5. Starts out sounding more like gothy rock than anything metal. Some clean, female sounding vocals and mellow trippy sections.
**6. Clean, individual notes on guitar to begin. Eventual double bass drums and medium paced heaviness. Lots of different parts in this track.
7. Another quiet intro. This track stays mellow for a good 4 minutes before rocking a little bit but mellows back out quickly.
**8. Faster and heavier than most of the rest of the disc. The last two minutes are quiet, almost ambient.
9. Slight march on drums. Hmm…I’m not buying the clean call and response vocals.
OK Stuff. -mph
