can be seen as the project of Steve Smyth, known guitar player in Testament,
Forbidden, Nevermore and Vicious Rumors. Not a bad curriculum if you ask me.
That made me really curious and I did expect a lot from this band. Also because
on vocals we hear former Mercenary member Mikkel Sandager and the other members
have band names like Chaoswave, Mnemic and Biomechanical in their background.
After the first song I was very disappointed
because it all sounds so over the top. There is too much going on and the mix of
the album is not good. It all sounds a bit chaotic and I couldn't put a finger
on the songs. The musicians know their job, the guitarsoli are melodic, the
riffs are aggressive, but the vocals.... What Mikkel is doing on parts of this
album is just not good. He exaggerates in the higher regions and overshouts
himself. His clean normal singing sounds good on the other hand.
The music is rather technical and can be discribed as a mix of Nevermore and
Mercenary, a power metal and thrash metal combination. Another band that they remind
me a lot of is Charred Walls of the Damned, if you dig that band, you will have
no problem with this album I guess. On the next album there are 2 big things
that need to be changed, the over the top singing and the mixing. For me this
album is a little disappointment, it could have been so much better.
