2 stars After the stellar Crimson, Edge Of Sanity returned to the sound and style of Purgatory Afterglow on Infernal. It's a highly inconsistent album that clearly can't make up its mind between straightforward death metal and melodic heavy rock. This rather sounds like a collection of leftovers then like a real album.

The tracks that show the hand of Dan Swanö are still enjoyable. There is good death metal on Hell Is Where The Heart Is and Hollow. And there are a number of more melodic songs with clean vocals such as 15:36, Losing Myself and The Last Song. But Swanö clearly kept the better songs in this style for his Nightingale project.

Two more albums were released under the name of Edge Of Sanity. Cryptic, which didn't feature Dan Swanö and Crimson II, which didn't have any one but Dan Swanö. So, even though the brand name continued to exist, Infernal is the end end for the actual band.

Bonnek | 2/5 |
