(Nuclear Blast)

It's about Lotte's (ex-Crematory) new band. A debut for Sculpture, then... Combining heavy riffs, intense melody, a harsh and modern sound. What they couldn't avoid is taking after Crematory at many points. The vocals are almost identical to the ones of Sentenced's "Down", without becoming annoying, though. An album with variety, beautiful ideas, experimentation and a wonderful atmosphere. Concerning the production, it's faultless, the keyboards get on perfectly well with the guitars and drums. Oh, and I almost forgot... vocalist Stefan sings for Darkseed as well. In general it's a satisfying album for atmospheric hearing.
