This band is one of those that can't decide what the heck they are trying to accomplish. They have a heavy-duty keyboard intro, and then they launch into some half-baked post-metal-sounding strumming with some screeches covered in awful effects. THEN they break out the soprano vocals to try and leaven an otherwise completely tedious composition. They seem to be under the impression that if they bury their music in enough filters it will be good, when they only way that would be true is if the filters removed the music entirely. Almost all these songs sound alike, with dull 4/4 trudging rhythms and digitized vocals barking along in time, so there is no polyrhythmic effect or counterpoint going on at all. It gets deathly boring by the middle of track 2. Skip the whole mess.
