It’s immediately apparent, from the fluid complexity of the instrumentation, to the palpable passion of the vocals (a good 75% of which are of the clean-sung variety), that the band are less interested these days in ticking all the right boxes to fit in than they are with finding new, and better, ways to express themselves musically.
As a result, much of the album shirks the rather lazy “Tech Metal” tag that has dogged them since their inception, and errs much closer to the more emotionally expansive and progressive sound of Thrice than it does the majority of their polyrhythmically-inclined peers – a feeling enhanced in particular by the steadily developing vocals of frontman Kaan Tasan, which are delivered with a sense of conviction that sets them head and shoulders above the attention-seeking histrionics of so many of the band’s contemporaries.
