A great EP. The music is dynamic and contains some very unexpected elements. Reggae? Since it's only for 40 seconds or so, they get away with it. Great vocals, and a nice groove. Metalcore for people like me who can't stand most metalcore bands and their incessant, brain dead screaming.
This EP gets better every time I play it. Starts off with a punch in the mouth with "The
Genesis Of These Scars" opening lick. Gets the blood pumping. I've never been this excited
listening to an album for the first time. Wasn't expecting Dubrise's groove but reggae-ish
beat is cool in my book. Narrow, The Path I Walk Part I is a great instrumental lead into
Part II. As The City Sleeps- One of my favorites off this disc. Saxophone?? very cool twist.
The Martyr's Song ends smoothly leading into The First Redemption's intro. This songs is
getting the most plays. Great driving riff.. Solid track to end this Volume. All in All, One
solid EP. I look forward to Volumes 2 and 3 from these guys.
