3 stars Epilog works off the same formula used in the band's previous effort Hybris, yielding an overall sound and style that is the same. While this one by no means is bad, it just doesn't have the same oomph as the debut. The musicianship is fine and they use all of the same instruments perfectly. The arranging is good, but not amazing, and they still have that crushing dynamic sound (end of Hostsejd, for example) and mood changes in parts (though to a lesser extent). But I think the problem really lies in the melody department. This one simply doesn't have the same strong, interesting melodies. It's as if Hybris used up all band's ideas. Hybris was more riff based, while this one seems to latch onto a quiet melody, and ride it for some time. Perhaps it's just my taste, but that doesn't work nearly as well for me.

As bad as I feel for doing this, I simply cannot give this anymore than three stars, it is too disorganized and weak melodically for me to consider it anywhere near as good as Hybris.
