Scoot and Evngelancer's soundoffs characterize this album perfectly, though I must further emphasize how derivative this album sounds. It's certainly performed well, produced well, and packaged well. The rhythmic pacing, the soaring vocals, the extended chord stays, the underlying melodies: The Deviant produce an Opeth-Akerfeldt tribute if I ever saw one. This group clearly has tons of talent and lots of love for their scene. Let's see them throw some more creativity into their next release.
