Release Date: 2005 | Tracklist


This is the first release of this new Melodic/Death band and I'm impressed! I remember the first time I heard It I was Blown away. You can find any kind of vocal on this album from Deep Growling to Smooth harmony singing. An amazing guitar work from the axeman. They will make noise in the future. I'll review The best ones.

1. Chaos Weaver
One of the strongest song of the album. A great opener! It starts with a melody harmonized by the guitar and the keyboard then all the band comes in. The verse riff is pretty heavy. Deep Vocal which make the song pretty intense. Then in the prechorus you ear for the first time the amazing clean vocal of the lead singer. The chorus is basically a vocal exchange with the deep vocal and the clean. The guitarwork and the drumwork is awesome. The Guitar solo is intregate and complex. Very nice to see a new shredder from sweden...as usual. Then a bridge with clean emotive vocal and slow tempo then the song come back to the chorus.

5/5

2. 2012 - The Demise Of The 5th Sun

AMazing song. This is the song that get's me in the band. Amazing riff, double bass, lead keyboard...a great start. Clean Vocal in the verse . Then The Low Voice comes in the prechorus with an amazing footwork by the drummer. Nice CHorus with a mix of clean, screams and low voice at the same time. The Breakdown is pretty scarry. I love his voice. The Solo are insane and perfect. Then The Chorus comes in.
5/5

3. Dominion

Nice main riff with the piano in the background. The Verse are pretty intense.Amazin Drumming Again. The Voice of the singer will get you for sure. The Bridge features one of the most beautiful voices in death metal. Pretty interesting solo again. Nice Song.

4.5/5
6. Veil Of Illusion

This Song Feature for the first time clean guitar work in the verse. The chorus is pretty cathchy and the main riff remind me a lort of Soiwork. Amazing Riffing again. The Soloing is awesome. It's so melodic and technical. The Solo progression is perfect. Amazing Song.
5/5

Amazing Guitar Solo
Different Kind Of Vocal
Each kind Is pretty awesome
Drumming Is awesome

Cons:
1 or 2 filler

This sounds like a cliche, nerdy, wimpy death metal album. Of course I have yet to hear it, but I'm just guessing due to song titles.

Bad review, very un-professional to say "For The rest go check out this album it's a must-hear. " and just not finsh the review. Little detail and by your descriptions this band could be playing any type of music.

It's okay... I thought these guys were Black Metal for a long time. Until I heard some of this, I can see where they are Death.

Is this band generic sounding?

To me, the band sounds like old Soilwork, Symphony X (the clean vocals, in places), and Pain of Salvation. The album is very good, especially being their first. I definitely expect better in some later albums.

To cheeto-t:

I understand that you are giving constructive critism but to call that last sentence "un-professional" makes no sense. haha. C'mon now..



To foodforthegods:

I liked the review, do that for all of the songs and it'll be ace. So, I agree with everyone else.This Message Edited On 04.18.06

BUMP.



This is an amazing album. Funny how the band's fans on last.fm keep saying it's among their worst. Shutting them up is becoming a chore real quick.
