This is the self-titled first album from this band. I got an edition that includes a lot of DVD extras including a documentary and live footage. I must admit this was a bit of a impromptu purchase, I had seen the band perform on a YouTube video and was not convinced. So, putting this disk into the drive and hitting play I was a little bit concerned I might not enjoy it. A sticker on the CD mentioned fans of Nightwish might like it, so I guess subliminally that might have had an influence on my decision to buy.
Well, my fears turned out to be unfounded as I heard more songs the more I liked what I was hearing. My son described them as Nightwish gone-futuristic! He’s close to it with that description, however Nightwish have more of a folk tradition influence this band have more of a rock influence with dystopian lyrics. Interesting and grows on you the more you here it. A great opening salvo from a new band.
