Label: Prosthetic
This Pasadena neo-thrash crew's two guitarists, one a newcomer on this second album, slide into plenty of lush solo interplay to cancel out any brief death or screamo hints. Melodies don't end there, either: A couple dark ballads balance superfast semi-automatic ratatats without sounding sappy; opening harmonies of "Sleep of Virtue" shine an almost doo-wop sweetness and light; opener "Archeus" and Spanish-classical interlude "Wake Me When It's Over" are no less lovely for lacking lyrics. And when James-Paul Luna does sing, he comes off like a bratty young human, not an ugly old monster.
