While their 2012 album "A
Healing Place" was a solid effort, this new album is a big leap forward towards
the top of genre. While they are not just yet in the same league as genre giants
like Anathema and Katatonia, they are surely closing the gap fast.
"New Haven" is simply a much
stronger album all-together; the atmosphere seems more dens, the songs are
better written and more complete, the production is better... you get the
The sound universe can best
be described as a collection of beautiful melodies with a underlying melancholic
atmosphere, and each song takes us on an introvert journey into the soul. The
songs don't stick right out the box, and I needed many spins to fully appreciate
the finer nuances and layers of delicate sound. But once it opened up to me it
began to crawl under my skin... and now I really, really like this album.
Recommended to fans of
atmospheric sounds with a slight progressive edge.
