Rating:
7.7
The French melodic death band Fractal Gates establish a coherent album with a touch of dynamism in Beyond The Self. While it bears a strong consistency to their core sound which is at the meatier end of the subgenre's spectrum it displays the earnest ability to add considerable variation to the compositions.

Until the End
Most things touched by the mighty Dan Swanö tend to be of exceptional standard. Hope it's the case for this record.

Mmm, just fucking delicious. They did not disappoint. It's not that much different than ASOC aside from clean vocals . I love their sound so much. The production is flawless. This will be high on my list by the end of '13.

Good album, but in my opinion doesn't reach to top-level.
Everblaze is the best song.
