Opening with “Heart” the eclectic mix instantly has you transfixed as Fia Kempe’s Vocals draw you into an ecstatic state of progressive rocking heaven, its one hell of a start as the emotions and beats wash over you. Things progress with “Afterbirth” the experimental soundscape blending in some sonic elements in this twisted electro guitar powder keg of styles, transfixed? You will be!
“Army of me” has an industrial feel that oozes out of your speakers and continues to fascinate and enchant you, with its electronic dance vibe doused in metal. The piece de resistance is left to the end with the superb breath taking “Neon Dreaming” sending shivers and goose bumps into your being , it’s an exceptional piece that moves and holds you spellbound, its ethereal opening will give you goose bumps this is simply one of the most stunning songs you will ever hear.
Everything about this release hits you between the eyes with its intensity and progressive magic even down to the eye-catching artwork this is the full package and we can’t wait for a full Album, here at The Metal Gods Meltdown!
