This review is from: Warm Glimpse (Audio CD)
I bought this album after a reviewer compared them to bands such as Opeth and Ephel Duath (two of my favourite bands). When i first listened to it i found that while these comparisons are fair enough (especially Opeth, the vocals and acoustic passages are strikingly similar), there is so much more here.
Thrashy, almost old school riffing reminiscent of Opeth mainman Mike Akerfeldt's "other" band Bloodbath, interesting experimental passages similar to Pattons later stuff, and in songs like "Loosely of Amoebas" and "Pearl of my Suffering" you have some of the most well structured and catchy extreme (make no mistake, this IS extreme) metal songs youll ever hear.
Some people may be put off buy the almost uncanny similarity of the vocalist to Mike Akerfeldt, but if youre going to sound like anyone on the extreme metal circuit, why not sound like the master?
All in all, essential listening, and one of the best metal albums i've heard this year
