Powerful drums, great vocals and impressive guitar along quite interesting lyrics that I feel flow smoothly seem to be solid and doesn’t feel repetitive.
My favorite tracks will be explained below and also why I picked them.
“Died In My Sleep” since it reminds me of classical music in a part with a guitar, “Half As Dead” for the awesome lead guitar, loved the intro on “Cold Blood” even if the singer screams/growls a bit on that one at first as much as that whole song.
“One Step Behind” was also an interesting song, I liked it very much because the singing felt more natural and the instrumentation (more specifically the lead guitar) along the lyrics were quite like a puzzle with all pieces together.
“The End” one song that starts with tons of energy personally I love that one for the general energetic vibe of it.
“Patience” piano intro on this one evokes nostalgia, melancholy and then a blast of energy it just combines really well with the more rock-side that comes after
“Slight The Odds” another classical-ish intro, this time with strings and then powerful heart-felt vocals and a masterful classical ending to “close the book” that is the album.
All in all, is an album I highly recommend to anyone that enjoys metal. -Sophia Cynthia Cabral
