The first song from this album was a demo of 'A Principle God', a song which definitely showed a much softer approach to their sound, but nevertheless was a superb song in its own right. This song is driven more by melody and Ashe's vocals than by the rhythm work.
Despite this, the whole album does a good job of balancing songs driven by melody and rhythm. The intro track, 'Ortus', is one of the best opening tracks to an album I've heard this year, with plenty of atmosphere and a huge build up at the end which leads into the second track and first proper single, 'Inner Child'. This is a very different song to the two aforementioned songs, with more concentration on the guitar work which is heavier, but is never overpowered. Not only does this band succeed in creating a very cinematic atmosphere, they never drown out that atmosphere with outrageously heavy guitar work. It's an album where balance between heaviness and atmosphere is executed brilliantly.
