Self professed proponents of experimental Death Metal live up to the billing with an album of technical,progressive and yes,experimental Death Metal. The listener is forced to listen to every track intently,to wander is to miss something incredible and often quite brilliant.This has Brutal death undertones,tech death time signatures and guitar tone.,the lyrical content most fitting an album of doom and the all round technical expertise of prog.

This band describe themselves as, Experimental Progressive Death/Black Metal and the fare they serve up on this, their debut album, lives up to the billing. They added 14 guest musicians to the already 6 strong band, playing a mind boggling array of instruments ranging from Piano to Trumpet, Orchestral percussion to Viola and several more that I neither have the patience nor space to list. The texture and layers this all adds to the music is incredible and reveals itself more and more on each listen. To be fair it took a couple of listens to 'get it' and fully appreciate what was going on and it isn't until track 4 that it really rises above standard melodic death fare of late, In Mourning as an example would be pretty accurate. After this the comparison I'd find easiest to make would be with Crimson era Edge of Sanity and while not quite in that class it is a very decent effort indeed. If you've any liking for the 2 bands mentioned (or Opeth even)then this album is right up your street and needs to be heard.
