𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑: 𝕲𝖚𝖎𝖙𝖆𝖗 & 𝕭𝖆𝖘𝖘: Combing intense, duel sharp groovy/progressive riffing & breakdowns, with emotional (clean) passages/melodies & solos, with ravaging pickings of the bass
𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖑: 𝖁𝖔𝖈𝖆𝖑𝖘: Hoarse growls mixes with yelling/shouting with an anthem chorus
𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖑𝖑: 𝕯𝖗𝖚𝖒𝖘: Groovy-thundering drum patterns & beats
𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖁: 𝕺𝖛𝖊𝖗𝖆𝖑𝖑: Soon as you press the play button, the listener unleashes the Kracken of a hurricane of twenty-five-minute release, featuring five memorable songs, with the first track, been an epic intro.
At the start of the intro, the listener is welcome to an epic opening, with crowds of people yelling and screaming, while the Gods send the wrath of destruction on those, I must say the intro is a very interesting opening, with a warm guitar riffing/solos, to warm the listener up.
I found that each of the remaining five songs, as a beautiful build-up within the songs and a theatrical vibe, all not played in a metalcore style, but blends groove metal, progressive metal, tint-of melodic death metal within their music, while intertwining all this with some nice warm mid-tempos, fancy-groovy – (dense) sound to the guitar playing, while adding clean solos & passages, then vocalists, are a breath of fresh air within their style of singing mixing the clean & growling & another multifaceted technics, catchy energetic beats & other various compositions sounds, moods, brief unplugged acoustic/electric guitar & vocal moments, with a good deliverance of impressive craftmanship & musicianship – entertaining release from start to end – a must listen – a demon – a hurricane of pure energetic music, surly captures something unique/magical spark in their music
*highly recommended, not to be missed*
*epic & blood pumping*
*entertaining sound of groove/metalcore*
An Unleashed Kraken
𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖁: 𝕬𝖗𝖙𝖜𝖔𝖗𝖐: The artwork is impressive, showing a squid (or could this be Cthulhu or the Kraken? Just how the ep opens up to the listener) sinking a mighty city or could this be Atlantis, time for the Gods to rise?
𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖁𝖑: 𝕺𝖚𝖙𝖘𝖙𝖆𝖓𝖉𝖎𝖓𝖌: The whole EP, artwork
