One of the first things you notice about their first album, Retrospective is that it has a dark and somber atmosphere. You get this from the start with Lyke's vocals over minimal keys, and then the heavy, thumping, Shadow of Light, where Jidell's guitar brings some welcome bright relief near the end.
