The Truth
5 stars Elegantly dark is how I like to describe this album, it contains some extremely dark music (not as dark as Heresie of course) but at the same time is very elegant.

The haunting opener Presage is a very mysterious and enigmatic track that after hearing it once you just have to hear it again. It's a thick wall of dark beauty that has many layers to peel through.

The second track is a little more light-hearted (if you can call it that) and seems to be there only for the purpose to balance out the material but it does it's job well.

Chantal (For Celesta) is very close to classical music but has that chamber-rock edge to it that makes the album great and in the end the track just seems very epic.

Parade is the most RIO-sounding song on the album, it's stellar guitar playing really makes it stick out. The track also should be noted for keeping the same atmosphere of the rest of the songs while it's still alot heavier.

Emmanations. That is what this album is. When you mix all of the sounds previously heard in the album into one this is what you would get. The track is a long, dark, dense path down the chamber rock road and it's a wild ride. The overused phrase "eargasm" definitely comes to mind when describing this track.

I'd definitely say masterpiece, much better than Heresie in my opinion, it contains more instrumentation which is a win.

The Truth | 5/5 |
