2 stars "Limitless, Or So it Seems" is a single by The Deadstation and almost five minutes of progressive metal aggression. The drumming is some of the most uncompromising I've heard; this drummer plows through the shrill verses with the double bass pedal in overdrive. I find that element distracting, robbing what could have been a dynamic piece of the vibrancy it freely boasts in the beginning. The tapped guitar solo initially follows the rapid bass drumming, then sounds exactly like a piece from Koei's video game series Dynasty Warriors. I must say the cover art amused me (it is a play on TBS, a television station with the slogan "very funny"). All in all, this is a decent metal song that could have done with a measure of percussive restraint.

2 stars Confused: "Limitless, Or So it Seems", is a single, non-album release by The Deadstation, given out for free on their website, only a few months before their very interesting EP ''Episode 01: Like Peering Into The Deepest Ocean Abyss''. The single-track download features a bit less than 5 minutes of relentless high-speed power/heavy metal. With just a few drops of tempo, the track uses the typical power metal rhythm guitar, drum blast-beat and high-pitched vocals combination to come to an indifferent result. The use of major chords does not marry well with the "djenty" style of the band and so the outcome confuses the listener who is balancing between melodic "happy-tunes" and aggressive approach. There is very little about progressive metal here; on the contrary a very typical teutonic power metal track with "djent" character (and glimpses of progression).

It is recommended that those seeking to get to know the band try their EP, as this single is non-representative of their sound.
