3 stars The setup of Electric Cello, Guitar, Drums, and a mix of male and female vocals, on a Post-Metal album, could not sound more interesting, so I was expecting something rather special. And it is somewhat special, the cello is unique and do make a 'different' sound, but when you get used to it, and listen to the album without paying special attention to the Cello, it does not stick out that much, and what you got is relative straight forward metal most of the time.

There are moments of Cello driven 'classic' inspired music, works especially well on the 17 min. 'We Can'.

All in all, this is too standard Heavy Metal, to make my water boil, its ok, but not at all essential, I can creep up to a 3 star rating, helped by the fine 'Shellmounds' and the even better Epic 'We Can'.

The ballade 'Once a shadow' is relatively forgettable, and attempt on something different, almost a bit 'Gentle Gaint'ish, but the melody nothing special. And the shifts in and out of 'heavy' parts, predictable.

The finishing track War's End, is a piece of calm chamber music, with a soft mellow song. A fine ending, although it seems somewhat misplaced, on this already confused Metal album.

Prog Heavy and Prog. Metal today, is at a very high level, Crayceon's All We Destroy, is well below the top mark. The concept is no doubt interesting, but they have to do better, to make it stand out from all those other bands.
