Well this is quite an album. Shaded Enmity appear to be a melodic brand of death metal with just a hint of core. They don't skimp on the heavy however. The vocals are your usual high/low screams and growls and while quite good, somehow are the least interesting part. The music is long winded and dense, too long imo, as 67 minutes of death metal is a bit much. If they cut some parts out this could've been a hard 4.5. The music is all over the place yet fluid and there are many gorgeously beautiful sections mixed with a few heavy parts. In fact the songs are composed in an almost black metal fashion in the case of the longer tracks. The production is a bit on the raw side for modern death metal but very good. The bass is audible and very cleverly used and the drums are extremely technical. Overall a very good metal record. Prepare for a long listen though.
