Rekindled Dark Tranquillity love?,
This review is from: Construct (Audio CD)
I must admit that we are the void nullified anticipation for the new DT album, however within the first few minutes it was proved to be incorrect.
Its been described as the most innovative DT album yet but in my opinion it is simply an elaboration on many previously brilliant, landmark albums. Listen to the science of noise and it could perfectly fit in with Damage Done; Uniformity on the other hand suits Haven with atmospheric keyboard moments, the list goes on.
The album has many great moments and thus far Id say its the best album Ive heard in 2013, surprising really considering that I expected mediocre at best, it really is a combination of Dark Tranquillities best moments: great, epic melodeath riffs, raspy vocals (which I highlight are exceptional even for someone like Michael Stanne), fantastic lyrics, good bass and drums.
Its just a well thought out album that I havent been able to stop listening to ...so give it a go and enjoy!
