„The Redshift“ is the band´s second album with a new vocalist after former frontman Antti Filppu left the band in 2006. And that´s exactly where the problems start because hardly anywhere you have the feeling that music and vocals really belong together – the growls don´t really fit to the beautiful, emotional melodies that guitarist and main songwriter Markus Vanhala squeezes out of his instrument, it´s almost as if you would listen to two different radio stations. Especially live the guys really stand in their own way – musically and physically. The only half-decent songs “No Breaking Point” and “Distant Light Highway” were written by second guitarist Harri Pikka who managed to unite music and vocals a little bit better. However, the rather lame lyrics impact the listening experience negatively. “Butterflies”, anyone? All in all, a quite nice attempt of epic death metal but with some changes they could possibly do much better.
