A difficult adaption
on 16 February 2005
I really loved the previous album and in particular the vocals. In many ways I also like the new one, but the new singer just hasn't got the right voice for it. Jesse was the heir to the hard core throne after Burton (Fear Factory) left the scene. He had a feral hunting snarl as well as the uplifting harmonics needed to make this kind of music work.
This album seems confussing at times. It's starts out hard and heavy with splendid vocals, but suddenly transforms into something like Swedish power metal like Hammerfall. It feels like the band has tried to make to much happened in to short a time, and has ended up a little confused themselves.
Hope theire next one will turn out better because they still show a lot of potential.
