I don't fully understand how you can say the lyrics are "exceptionally profound" yet only give them a 6.75.

It's because you can't really hear them. I figured someone would ask that, haha.

Wouldn't that have more to do with production? Or the vocals, even? The words themselves shouldn't take heat just because they're difficult to decipher at times.

I thought about that but aside from the lyrics mess up they were great, so I just lowered lyrics because the issue wasn't pertinent to vocals or production as a whole.

the RIYL is pretty ... awful... wrong.

it's more like mixing the dark parts of underoath with the heavy parts of alexisonfire and beating someone to death at someone elses funeral.
that's how epic it is.


also, no part of this should be rated under a 9. for a debut album, this is unbeatable.

Not reminiscent of Alexisonfire in the slightest, not an unbeatable debut album. It's solid for what it is but they're not revolutionary in the slightest. They have a slightly unique take on modern metalcore and it's a good album, but the ratings here are accurate. Giving everything a 9 or above would be far too overzealous.

This is one of my favorite cds so far. I remember when it was just a 3 song ep. They definitely stepped up on the quality.

I'm not a big fan of interludes...There are three of them on this cd. One of them is a bit long. If they had to stick one in, it should be at the beginning of the album. Empire is such a strong track. It really reminds me of what converge would have.
Marasm could have been shortened up a tad...It's over 14 minutes long and would be a great if it was two separate tracks

For me I like
Empire
A New Aurora
My Hands Will Burn First
Glances (Part II)
Marasm
Nichòlas
The Traitors' March


The three songs they have from the ep have a deeper and more raw sound to it on this version.
