...Underlying Issues is heavier, dense, maybe even channeling their darker angle from their early years. What is clearly notable from the start, and throughout, is the abundance of riffage, powerful and relentless. Some may listen and find a depth and blister akin to thrash metal. These things, in turn, are wrapped up in the brisk pace of power metal. However, even when the tempo is more moderate, as with All And More, Eldritch keeps the thumping heaviness in high gear. Even so, underneath and weaving its way through the songs is melody and harmony. Though the guitars are brisk and sharp, there's still harmony.
