This album kicks ass. Definitely some TBDM in there, but songs like the title track and VII: the Descent help
Wretched stand apart and are obviously not close to anything BDM would do. As the other sound-offs noted, this
album is great in part because the guitar and drum work here is amazing. If you're into Knights of the Abyss, or
perhaps All Shall Perish, I would recommend checking this album out, even just for the two songs I named plus
Aborning, and A Preservation of Immortality.
Very good album. Kind of pigeonholed by The Black Dahlia Murder and the such, but they pull it off very well. Excellent drumming and excellent guitar work. Vocals are well done and the lyrics are interesting. The dark, tremolo picked passages alone make this album worth buying. The title track is also an amazing instrumental including some flamenco guitar.
Not anything too special. Very generic gothenburg melo-death metal plus breakdowns. Only thing worthwhile about the album were the also somewhat generic solos. The title track is worth checking out though.
This is one of those albums where you can listen through the entire tracklisting once and be happy. Every
member of this band has extremely good talent. Great songs to check out besides ALL of them:
VI: The Exodus of Autonomy (Instrumental)
Further notes...this band isn't your average chug chug BREAKDOWN TIME band. Beautiful and well written
songs from a lyrical aspect as well as an instrumental aspect. Like most can agree...it's a shame that these
guys aren't as popular as they should be. Once again...a great album.
Fantastic band, fantastic album. Although they contain similar melodic structures as TBDM, they are in no way copies. They prove to hold their own with fantastic melodic guitars, crushing breakdowns, and interesting musicality. The long instrumental is fantastic.
