Review by TheOppenheimer

4 stars A blend of many contemporary metal styles, delivering an interesting and delightful album.

To start with, I'd like to say the cover art is inspiring, few album covers grab my attention like this one.

1. Empire 7:25: A powerful, heavy and fast track, with notable riff and drum work. (3/5)

2. A New Aurora 7:21: In the same fashion as the first track. This one includes clear vocals, which really fit into the ambient of the album. (4/5)

3. My Hands Will Burn First 3:02: A short, sweet and emotional track (careful, it's not 'sweet' at all, we're talking about post-progressive-tech metal). The vocals and the drums shine throughout the whole song. (4/5)

4. Ascending 8:06: This song is 'different', its mostly instrumental, and ambiental, with less riffs and stuff, and more 'soundscape', a break from the tracks before. (5/5)

5. Glances (Part I) 2:05: A short instrumental passage, with a really interesting "backwards" section, that blends in to the second part of the song. (3/5)

6. Glaneces (Part II) 4:07: The "single" of the album, vocals and all the things you want to hear from this kind of band. No wonder it has a youtube video with lots of views. (2/5)

7. Marasm 14:35: My favourite track of the album, a true journey through post metal, ambient, and unseen stuff. Maybe this track alone gives the album the title of "best of 2010". (5/5)

8. Nicholas 8:50: An overall awesome track, it showcases everything AVL can do, in a powerful yet emotional way. Really enjoyable. (5/5)

9. Infinite Sunset Of The Sleepless Man 2:56: Another instrumental break, that clears the path for the last track of the album. (3/5)

10. The Traitors' March 7:46: An outstanding song, with a hard-to-forget build-up and explosion, in a soul-crushing way ("I'm still hereeeeeeee"). Tremendous way to close the album, AVL delivers once again. (5/5).

All in all, it is one of the best records of the year, definitely deserving more than a single listening. There will be "oh god!", and also "this again?" and "what the [%*!#]?" moments, but it's overall a great album, that will captivate any post-metal fan.


Thanks to bonnek for the artist addition.
