Here is the follow up to their debut album - a good slab of heaviness. Comparisons have been made to Slipknot or Killswitch Engage. There are elements of nu metal, hardcore and some slightly softer moments. If you thought 'The Light In Guinevere's Garden' by East West was over-produced, you will like this. It's a tad heavier and darker. Vocals interestingly range from nu metal to hardcore, with occasions of death/black metal and then also melodic singing and harmonising thrown in for good measure. The lyrics are cryptic, but definitely dark, angry, morose, negative. The only clear edification comes from "Coffin Builder" - a song about dying to self daily - excellent. This is very good stuff, but (people will disagree with me) I don't know that it is an enduring classic; give it time and we'll see. If you like your music good as well as loud, this is well worth a try.
