Does anyone aside from me think the vocalist somewhat sounds like Keith from ETID?

this is fucking awesome. totally agree that the outro to this album should have been longer and I
would have been completely satisfied with this release.

I know I can buy them. But I physically cannot as I have no way to. And I'm hoping they don't run out before I can.

At first, you are struck with a very mature and progressed sound, which is ultimately so refreshing for a first release. An experimental post-metal vibe has been concocted through only a year of the bands existence; a sound that bands older than five years are still trying to achieve.

It comes across that the whole year was time spent working on their archetype, not simply a project to pick up and drop as they please – it sounds like they have had trial and error, and worked on many previous songs (this may not even be the case) in order to truly be comfortable with a sound that is very mature and patient; not rushed. This already, in my opinion, gives Acres leverage, in which I respect. They have taken the intensity and rising commercial success of American’s scene and merged that within their culture, opposed to simply chugging away at an open drop D and having an aggressive verse and cleanly sang, power-chorded chorus.

This record is twenty minutes of fury that flows from track to track beautifully, and fails to derail from excellence. However, once played, it becomes hard to distinguish one track from another, and although it runs perfectly, it can therefore blend simply into the background or not strike your attention, as there appears to be little significant trademarks the band currently embellish (taking on board that they are just beginning however) or no part of a song stands out from another and is easily remembered; but this could be down to the mixing as well as the band trying to find their feet. Considering this is their first release, it is truly remarkable.

If their live performance is anything like this record suggests, it will be solid, and the heights this band will reach will make even their influences and heroes nauseous.

The ending of "Something To Write Home About" was my favorite part of the song. I'll have to check the rest of this out later.
