Compositionally, this is amazing. The keys and riffage and beautiful production, I feel like I'm listening to what Amorphis should have turned into (minus the vocals of course).

"I'm not trying to make a direct comparison, more of a if you like this you'll like that kind of thing. Obviously Streams Inwards still has more metal and the growls... but as far as the atmospheres, the big melodic sections, and the way they use the keyboards in an atypcial way for metal -- the albums even kind of transition from heavy to more abstract as they go on."



Fair enough dude, bottom line, this is really good. Thanks for turning me onto this. As always, anything you review seems to capture my attention ;)

Very nice review.



One of the most enjoyable 2012 releases so far.



If they manage to evolve their identity around songs like Atoma, Hole In The Sky or Bermuda Riviera and skip the dispensable harsh vocals, Atoma will be one of the finest bands of the decade.

This is very post-rockish. I don't like it a lot after my first listen.

Digging: SubRosa - For This We Fought the Battle of Ages

Is it more post-rockish or post-metalish? Because if it's the latter, I think I'd dig.

There are also elements of shoegaze, ambient and gothic rock for sure. Very hard to categorize. This is not heavy though.

I don't even know if I dig it yet. It oscillates between being post-metal-ish, post-rock-ish, and

weird.

post-metal pretty much sucks so I'm happy that it isn't quite so prevalent here.
