The Good: Apparently post-rock is a dying breed. If that is the case then these guys clearly didn't get the memo because this release sounds fresh and exciting. Whereas many post-rock/metal bands are characterised by minimalistic, repetitive instrumentation, these guys aren't afraid to throw in some intricate guitar or kickass drumming with their emotive soundscapes.

The Bad: Whilst the vocals aren't bad, I feel they just don't bring anything to the table and it would sound better as a fully instrumental EP.

The Verdict: Really cool release from a lesser known band.
