I really want to like this, but the band runs out of ideas after track 2. There’s some really awesome solos here, but the metalcore elements get annoying the further you progress into the album. The band is a nice reunion story, and the title refers to the fact that the original band (named Elysium, hence the new name) never finished their first album and broke up a decade ago. But as cool of a story as it is, they brought some questionable help from some questionable bands (namely Solipsist). No matter how cool the melodic solos are, the constant chugging is annoying, and the random acoustic guitar passages don’t add anything and seem more like pointless wank than anything else. It’s not as bad as I’m making it out to be, but not really worth a second look.
