As this album begins its harrowing journey into a world of bedlam, I can clearly see I have made the right decision to review this. It snakes and veers in a twisted motion that although is only an introductory track lasting one minute seventeen seconds it really does make its mark!
The next installment ‘Rite to Kill’ is a good five minutes fifty three so there’s plenty to engage in and what a tremendous vocal slurry. This is really serious to the audial as it cloaks the perceptions with a finely tuned encounter adding in that melodic haze – superb.
‘Blood of The Fall’ has a very acute sound that keeps you grounded and focused as it sweeps with a tremendous overwhelming sound. Thundering with alluring appeal and quite unique although they hold a lot of vigour the melodies compliment on a generously grand scale.
‘Cotard’s Blade’ with a very strong title this track exceeds expectations and another fusion of complex strings and untethered beats that weave an unusual drama, with a melodic core that goes a long way to scintillate.
‘Leave the Living for Dead’ unveils a hard hitting edge that literally stalks with predatory power and allegiance to its main cause. Flourishing it goes into overdrive as the guitar licks your lobes with a feisty melody.
‘For a Fleeting Moment’ the sound of thunder mixed with rain sparks to life as a hazy melodic sprint builds towards its goal. The strings are full bodied absorbing a rich tapestry that grows as the mood quickens, however it does sound slightly off kilter at times.
‘Where Wings Will Burn’ this track has the connotations of euphoric in every sense of the word! Its dream-like complexities throw you into turmoil as the chords build to such amazing levels.
‘I Am The Flood’ is another controlled power trip that gathers energy through a tirade of punchy madness and melodic intent.
‘Half Hand’ is a beautiful track flourishing with extreme immensity and melodic duress that encapsulates with surging harmonies and intense thickening textures.
‘Lord of The Suffering’ a strong track that belts out a victorious vibe, driven with molten metal. Nobody could deny that this is heavy in every sense of the word.
‘The Horde Exodus’ is like a mind bending drug that is exaggerated with a resonating punch to the throat, quickly going in for the kill with blinding groove and solid momentum!
