I took a chance with this album after reading an article of the band in Metal Hammer. I'm so glad I did because I've just discovered my new favourite band of all time!!! At first I was expecting something similar sounding to Periphery, but whilst there are more polyrhythms and technical mathcore riffage that you can shake a stick at, you get something far more accessible and groove laden. Part of this is down to the vocalist, Daniel Tompkins, whose clean vocals take the music to another level, his range is ridiculously good. Musically you've got the technical ferocity of Meshuggah, Periphery and Sikth combined with the song structures that wouldn't be out of place on a progmetal album. Take album highlight and centre piece Concealing Fate, its a 25 minute opus split into 6 parts that ebbs and flows through some beautifully melodic parts before unleashing a barrage of heavy, groove laden technical metal. It will leave you breathless. Plus, these guys are British so get behind the UK metal scene and buy thia album, you will not be disappointed.
