Opening track ‘On Burning Wings’ can be likened to a sequel to a very gripping movie that you don’t want to miss a moment of. The intensity builds bravely and boldly and engages as it reaches its powerful limits with some very influential soundscapes.
Next track ‘Purified‘ shows the nitty gritty side of the band’s nature and comes in all guns blazing and guitars screaming. The melodic fury eagerly invades the ear space and drowns them in a magnetic and salacious groove.
‘By My Hand’ holds a hypnotic and melodic hue that is feisty and breathes an addictive sound. ‘Whorehouse Symphony’ is a scratch that makes the wound bleed with its unusual quirky guitar noises and large steady drum beat. Irresistible and groovy with might chugs of metal it will eat you alive.
‘Regrets’ possesses a soft stringed arrangement that delves into a dream-like structure and opens up a magnificent backdrop of sound. The vocals are melancholy but still have a strength that flourishes within the track that also contains a melodic tidal wave.
‘Sleeping with Wolves’ and the howl of the wolf is prevalent as the track plays a folk type timepiece although it does explode rowdily and forthright and turns into a fantastic rock track.
‘Adamah’s Tribes’ serenades with an anxious intrigue that is dark and bleak at least for the beginning of this tense track but realise this is only a filler and feel cheated that it is cut short in its prime.
‘Triad of Faith’ succumbs to a fierce and devilish lust that holds particular strange and slightly out of time harmonies. The sound broadens your horizons and introduces you to swaggering bass hooks and playful riffs that dance with the ears.
‘Fly’ is a stark contrast to the previous track showing more of a caress than a swipe. It sounds like a Spanish guitar is working its magic in this sweet little ballad.
‘Devil’s Darling’ takes us by the horns and throws us back into a tumultuous battle with metal chords and sultry bass licks and quite a full on sound that is very addictive! It takes bold catchy strides with a sort of innocence that is deceptive but none the less unhidden.
‘It Remains Empty Forever’ has a bit of a ropey start, however, it soon turns it on its head and marches forward with a flirtatious escapade that evolves with tenacious bounce!
