Whereas the first Kemet high tech as more slow this record take where that one lefts and continues the same atmosphere while also taking it into a faster version of the same path, not meaning to say that you cannot enjoy this album as "stand-alone" like i myself did at first.

in this record electric guitars are given a more prominent place but in more of riff style rather than the melodic solos than the artist does very well in other releases, this riffs seem to be supported by background keyboards on almost the same notes to give a feeling of weight on the music, almost like a wall without ever feeling over-stacked or too congested.

There are many parts where a grandiose focus is build it from zero where other songs tend to be more maintaining an aura of the heat of ancient Kemet. Songs like Karnak´s ruins have a very upbeat rhythm and natural feel to them where the intention is to have the sounds to make the listener reflect upon a matter rather than making him expect big changes. Melodies when they are present are very well thought and executed with sometimes effects on delay to give the idea of either darkness or being on an open natural area.

Very good record, i recommend it
