Fantastic record. An onslaught of breakdowns and melodic guitar riffs. Totally brutal. The guitar work on this album is just amazing. So many cool riffs. Every song hits where it hurts. Good metalcore.

5.0 classicRenderTheVoid | January 18th 13

A gorgeous masterpiece. Every single instrument is giving 100%, 100% of the time. If it doesn't impress you at first listen (which most likely wont happen), take 5 minutes to start to pick through how beautifully layered any and every track is. You'll instantly fall in love. Erra gives light that metalcore is finally evolving into something beautiful.

Their Djenty roots are apparent but this release shows maturity and growth.

5.0 classicDeuce8311 | May 30th 12

A very impressive debut that shows maybe there's possibly some life in metalcore. A notorious genre known for it's predictability, Erra add progressive elements and incredibly different, yet deep lyrics that make their music the exact opposite. That's exactly what Impulse was unpredictable. Though the various clean choruses will at times be a little too high, whiney, and predictable for some, they actually really add to the song itself. However, the instrumentation was anything but predictable. Very intricate and catchy guitar work with just the right amount of chugging that is laced with lyrics that aren't bad at all, makes for a great combination. The drumming follows nicely and is quite spectacular at times, though it doesn't tend to shine as much as the guitar work. The various synths and ambiance that is sprinkled throughout, at the beginning of "Architect" for example (they use a harp O_O), were used just enough to add to the atmosphere of the album. These guys seem to know what they're doing for being such a young band. Another important note about Erra is their live performance. They sound incredibly close to how they do on the record which is impressive considering a lot of vocalists fall flat on their face live. Jesse's cleans are just as insane on stage as they are in studio, and when combined with Garrison's powerful lead deliveries makes one think they are listening to their iPod. Erra is doing us a favor by adding to the metalcore genre that many people consider dead, but it's alive and kicking again thanks to Erra.

Digging the crushing metalcore elements, while transitioning into intriguing melodies. I, for one, have no issue with the singing on this album.

4.0 excellentDjentyNerdo | September 1st 14

An exceptional debut from a very creative band. From technical melodies and soothing background ambiance, many bands of the same caliber never see the light of day. It only goes to show that hard work has it's reward.

2.5 averageRafael Moreira | July 27th 12

Impulse is an average take on the new wave of technical Metalcore. Despite some good moments, Erra haven't done enough here to shine amidst their competition. Plus, the clean singing is just bad. Seems like the singer struggles with his lungs too much, outcome being an unnatural awful contribution.

Not gonna lie, I was extremely impressed by this band's chaotic experimentation. But the thing that astonished me the most was the heart and soul I could feel throughout all the headbanging moments.

4.0 excellentWayne H. | November 30th 11

I've always wondered what would happen if Born of Osiris traded their synth for cleans. Still pretty solid.
