Well done remakes that gives their older works their modern dark progressive/experimental metal edge without losing too much of the original hard rock edge. MACABRE is an absolute treat, and I find myself greatly enjoying THE FINAL. Production is sharp (same as UROBOROS' remastering & DUM SPIRO SPERO).
Fuck it, it's a 5. I really try putting off giving things a score this high, but this was such a big surprise. Every song is completely fresh, while at the same time it keeps it's original in full respect at all times. rThis album is a rejouice for fans of old and new.
Great collection of classic re-worked. The title track 'Unraveling' is without a doubt a leftover song from their 'Dum Spiro Spero' sessions is a good track to start off with in what is to come on this EP. The band really went all out in digging some gems in their discography. Songs like 'Karasu', 'Bottom of the death valley' and even ' Macabre' make appearances here all re-worked in their current 'Uroboros/DSS' style. I'm enjoying this release so far despite feeling their 5-year progressive style is a bit tiring. I'm just glad to see they haven't forgotten they have a huge back catalog and to see them bring their older tracks in tune again is something to treasure.
