Where the previous album, Variations on a Theme, opened with a squeal of feedback an overdriven bass, this album opens with relative calm, a deceptively simple rhythm at minor volume, and vocals that gently seep through the veil. This change in tone alone proves that simply being heavy is not necessary, and that the lyrical essence carries much more weight. The overall experience is similar to what one may find in the company of monks intoning sacred verses, and serves as a unique and powerful cleansing agent. - Toka
