Numinous, the five-piece from Northern Ireland, have been around for a couple of years and continue to make waves with live performances and now a four track EP of outstanding quality. This is quality rock with intricate guitar lines and complex rhythms bringing to mind Limp Bizket (the Mission Impossible 2 theme song), My Chemical Romance and Funeral For A Friend. Not surprising really as Matt Hyde, who produced and mixed this EP, has recently been working with Funeral For A Friend. The songs are well written and arranged. The stop/start rhythms and quiet and shade used in the opening track, "Follow Your Gift", really make the music stand out but are almost too much and threaten to overshadow the song as a whole. Having said that, the EP holds together well and after four songs the listener will be left crying for more.
