Review Summary: Worth a listen and looking forward to more of altars
Very refreshing to hear a mix of metal riffs, good catchy and energetic songs with some nice changes to keep you replaying certain songs over again. Songs are short and straight to the point, songs such as scum, revelation, the coward, Montreal, lower and unknowing are the pick of the bunch and each song is quiet different from each other. Vocals carry quiet a punch at times and back up vocals a nice change to break up it being repetitive.
To start the album the song red brick army is no revelance or style to the rest of the songs but is a gentle start to be followed by second song "scum" which is a song with lots of changes and maybe looses a little identity but still gets you listening over and over again. The coward is at first a song you tend to skip but it grows on you due to its unique style. My favorite song "revelation" has what seems like an ordinary start but goes straight into a thumping drumming and vocal combo at a fast pace but that being the best change on the album unfortunately is not repeated again on that song but is replaced by a chorus that basically repeats to the end of the song, but is still fitting to make a great sound. To cut a long story short there is some things I could suggest for a better album but the songs are definitely music to the ears, and worthy of the most highest volume to wake up everybody around you.
