Callenish Circle were among the surge of Melodic Death Metal acts of the early 2000s, and truth be told, I'm finding it hard to say any more than that. They get some points for having some cool melodies scattered throughout, but if there's anything that this kind of music should have taught us, it's that a few good melodies don't make up for cliched songwriting in a genre that's overflowing with it. The times when they do something a little different are actually the worst on the album, like the mumbled clean vocals and trendy acoustics of "Suffer My Disbelief" and the awful, awful ballad "Bleeding", which has keyboard melodies that even N'Sync would find too embarrassing to dance to. Stuff like this is why the Melodeath trend eventually started dying down, and that's about the only really positive thing I can say about this. Don't bother.
