Such a weird choice! Extremely Heavy riffs on a background rather Thrash/Death Metal, with a devastating battery and a... female voice, this would be a succinct presentation. I am not used with such combinations and I admit I was a little surprised of such manner of compiling ingredients. I must agree, the female voice (a kind of MADDER MORTEM with touches of THE GATHERING) brings colour to a sound that otherwise would get lost into the sea of bands that approach such already "cannibalized" style! Moreover, such voice discharges an impressing energy and I think that the way it communicates with the guitars... it is absolutely successful! I can also notice tracks in which extreme male voices burst out and I believe it forces the sound to be complete. Well, I am pretty sure that on the stage the adrenaline gets higher and higher almost instantly! I realize that we actually deal with the second album, right after a well-received debut in 2002. In other words, we can face here something between IN FLAMES and ARCH ENEMY.
