Other releases of the band: Here we hear their second EP, in addition they have released three albums and a single.

How did I get to know the band: Metal Devastation Radio sent me this EP and kept reminding me of it, so let's listen in: 

How do I like the record: I would rather say Symphonic Death Metal, but it doesn't sound bad. But let's listen together:

TIME TO SAY GOODBYE starts very quietly and gloomily. With a synth and removed bells. It doesn't sound bad, but when the Klampfen and all the rest started, I was happy that there are four full-fledged songs. Here they use quite a lot of keyboard, but it fits, even if not everyone will like it. I especially like the quite dominant bass, especially in combination with the vocals that have just the right amount of hardness for this music. 

NEITHER FAITH NO FEAR starts very quietly again, which is even dragged on for quite a long time, until the band finds a decent tempo that gives the verses something driving, while the chorus remains rather dignified. 

I PRAY TO I is a small break in style, because here the synth does not get a sophisticated intro, but the track starts directly and here is more Melodeath than Symphonic Death Metal. Beautifully dark but with enough brutality to make it sound like it was. 

SKY BURIAL finishes the album as it started, a powerful but quiet intro that leads us into the song, which then doesn't sound bad. Again, the whole thing comes across quite symphonically, which is a nice change to my other listening habits. 

Conclusion: That's good, even if it's not quite my style. In between quite nice, but too soft for me, which is due to the genre, so, give the whole thing a chance: - Full Metal Mayhem
