The most appealing aspects of this album are the artwork and track 10 - beautiful ballad “Day Zero”, so ignore the rest and put 10 on repeat. Edenshade deserves points for creativity and effort to really play something different, which sadly doesn´t succeed: progressive metal music and heavy growling don´t go hand in hand, sorry. Seems like the CD is skipping or there´s something wrong with the stereo. The 4th song, “the Drop” starts off promising and for once, harmonic, but after first 30 seconds continues like the rest of the album. Maybe as an experiment, a couple of songs with such style mix would be interesting, but an entire album is way too irritating and tedious.
