Staff review by
After "Seasons" and "Stormbirds" Evereve somehow ceased to amaze me with their releases. I mean sure, what they released in their post-"Stormbirds" era was something good, but definitely not groundbreaking that would make you remain totally satisfied.

After 2003's very interesting "Enetics" Evereve returned with "Tried & Failed" and they achieved exactly the opposite of their new release's title, they tried and succeeded into composing an album where inspiration, emotions/atmosphere, metal and electronics pace together in an ideal way. What is really remarkable is the fact that the guitars remain heavy and distorted and despite the fact that they aren't so powerful as on "Enetics" they make clear that we're talking about a metal release for one more time!
