Customer Reviews

Great album from a great band!

Been looking forward to this album for a while! Got my pre order in the mail early and have been listening to it non stop, and I just have to say its amazing! It'd be hard to top a masterpiece like seperation but this album compliments it and builds upon their vision for that album in every way. Its darker, more atmospheric, has more energy, and is just a deeper album overall and couldn't be more happy with the way it turned out. In a day and age where there is so much over saturation, its refreshing to hear a band just be themselves and make great music. Let the music speak for itself, and pick this one up!

Solid forward progression.

Perfect the whole way through.

They never disapoint. You can feel the emotion in every single word Jon Simmons says. You feel what he feels. This is a solid band. Buy the album.
