Sound — 10
A great sounding album indeed, the first song I heard was "Six" and I just immediatelly got hooked on this band. It reminds me a lot of Killswitch Engage but on steroids of course, great guitars, amazing drummming and the vocals will blast your face a good 2 miles away. Every song on this album is just incredible, there's not a single one that's not worthy of a good headbang. One of the best metalcore cds I've heard in a long long time, it's so powerful and varied and overall it's just a great flowing mix of speed, technicallity and harmonization. Go buy it!

The lyrics fit in perfectly with the music with a dazzling blend of growls, screams and clean harmonious vocals. "Not Alone" and "This Calling" are prime examples of this scream/clean mix they use. The lyrics in themselves are badass, add insane guitars and blast beat, double bass helicopter drumming and well you have the music of the gods.
Overall Impression — 10
I like this album more then ATR's other one, it's just aah! It's unbelievable! All the songs on this album will blow your mind and they are all so varied and unique, I guess that's what makes this album so great, apart from the well built solos, the counterpoints, the vocals and the drumming that just makes it all so right. If it were lost or stolen I would definitelly run down and buy another one.
