3 stars This is the first official release from this ambiant influenced progressive/ post hardcore band from England. Having only released one album so far (2007's A Fragile Hope) this was their first 'demo' released in 2005 and i have to say for the most part im impressed, musically this band is just really epic, i think its the vocals that really let them down, especially the singers clean vocals as they can come off a bit whiney and emo sounding, and really gets annoying after a while but after repeated listens to this 5 track release i really enjoyed it as he really makes up for the clean vocals with his growls and screams (he really has a set of pipes on him, song to really check out for that is CLOUDS or SOME FRIENDS) throw in an istrumental to seal the deal LIYL nd its quite an impressive wee ditty of an ep. Production as you'd expect is somewhat decent, can be a bit tinny at times but i wasnt really expecting the full works here, the instruments are played well and the songs are god and thats all that matters;

Darkness Prevails - 7/10 Some Friend - 8/10 Clouds - 8/10 LIYL - 9/10 Like It's Your Last - 8/10

My Conclusion? I have to admit i was quite impressed, not perfect, but a decent effort.
