𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑: 𝕲𝖚𝖎𝖙𝖆𝖗 & 𝕭𝖆𝖘𝖘: Solid riffs with aggressive and full-on power, with melodic passages, groove-ridden, with ravaging pickings of the bass.

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖑: 𝖁𝖔𝖈𝖆𝖑𝖘: With the Beauty & Beast format; Powerful Angelic voice of Cherry Duesbury, combined with the harsh screaming vocals of Calum Wilmot, giving the vocals a powerhouse of a robust duet performance.

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖑𝖑: 𝕯𝖗𝖚𝖒𝖘: Mid-tempo drumming with sweet rhythm beats, hard-hitting beats, fill grace and technique.

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖁: 𝕺𝖛𝖊𝖗𝖆𝖑𝖑: With thirteen tracks, that different from each other, giving us a concoction of varied styles, of alternative sound fx inserts [e.g. Violin, piano, keyboards, etc.], along with an atmospheric feel & upbeat experimental, instrumentation feel to the music, while embracing a frantic sound of aggression & angelic.

*full of energy* *a power-house*

*breathtaking & beautiful*

Combining both angelic & beast vocals,

top with aggressive, melodic Ouroboros music

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖁: 𝕬𝖗𝖙𝖜𝖔𝖗𝖐: I love the concept of the night cityscape with a samurai sword (in the ground), some of the tracks fit within the artwork.

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖁𝖑: 𝕺𝖚𝖙𝖘𝖙𝖆𝖓𝖉𝖎𝖓𝖌: The whole album, and their concoction of varied styles.

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖁𝖑𝖑: 𝕯𝖎𝖘𝖑𝖎𝖐𝖊: none !!!
