...the new album merges electronic beats, powerful guitar riffs, brooding strings and progressive elements. It manages to be delicate and heavy at the same time and switches from cataclysmic to melodic sounds in a heartbeat – just consider the passage from the opening ‘From Beyond’ to the following ‘Ghosts’, explosively busy one moment, somber and melodic the next .

‘From Beyond’ starts slow and recalls the familiar Blueneck style especially thanks to the comforting and graceful voice of Duncan. The wide range of soundscapes this song covers is impressive, but it’s towards the end that the track changes and will leave you speechless: when you are completely overwhelmed by the relentless crescendo combined with the synths making you feel as though in a locked room that’s about to explode and the melody of ‘Ghosts’ arrives unexpectedly, it wraps itself around you and it’s so beautiful that it will hurt the most sensitive souls.
