This kind of bands are the ones that fulfill all my expectations from Modern Metal, this release is one of those you are about to discover and keep for a long time, an explosion of harsh voices, dark ambient and then, soft vocals, acoustic moments and slow atmospheres, just 3 songs and I believe I have found something very precious in this band.

The guitars carry the moments, heavy and not fast riffs, passing by with so many notes, filling the moments and expressing the doom and dark in some of the purest forms I've ever heard, bass lines that are simply, but fill perfectly as the minutes run, making that deep touch very special, the drums are constantly changing of rhythm, but are firmly strong, and the keys... well they are the dark atmosphere, the deep intention and the completely soul in de doom moments, and after all the vocals are simply great in the moments they sound.

Well, this sound very promising, and they are, this 3 songs are some of the most great songs I've heard in a long time, and be sure you will keep hearing of these guys, they have found that what they do is simply excellent.
