The War Of All Against All is a pretty solid track. The ending comes a bit quick, but that’s not a huge deal considering the quality of the track otherwise. The chorus especially finds a notch in my head and makes home in there. Transition One is a decent interlude, it works well enough but the electronic drums are kind of loud and jarring. The Art Of Subversion is a fairly good track, but not too memorable.

Transition Two is a much better interlude with better drums and some haunting ‘aahs’. Dead Men Tell No Tales has some neat things going on but otherwise it’s nothing special. This EP is more of a hopeful thing for me, a band laying out what they want to do and it’s communicated fairly well here. Maybe there could have been slightly better execution, mostly in the songwriting, but it is how it is.

Final Rating: 6.5/10
