Tacit Fury is a Russian band playing Death/Doom Metal with some similarities of My Dying Bride, Anathema and the likes. This album is their second full-length, and their big chance to prove us they are a great band, capable of compete with the big names of the scene of course.

There are many good features in this album, but the songwriting abilities is what caught my attention from the beginning to the end; every song has a chilling structure, most of them are ascending scales that keep your ear close to the stereo at all times. The whole album slowly grows on the scheme; the music never becomes boring or worn-off, this for the incredible variation of instrumental execution and range, finally it has a very interesting atmosphere that constantly keeps you waiting for the ultimate climax that most times arrives in a marvelous way.

The music is innovative in its own meticulous way; yes it's not original and there are many bands trying to be "the next best thing" in this particular scene, but Tacit Fury knows exactly how to mix heavy and melodious motives in the proper amount. In the end the album sounds quite diverse, whether be for the different vocal tones, the craving beats, the thick execution, or the multifaceted guitar-work.

This album is really an enjoyable experience, most of the "open-minded" creatures will find in this album a masterpiece of underground music, but the ones who love their metal straight and solid as a rock will find in this disc an indigestible band with bad produced sound and a creepy/dark vibe, personally I liked it very fucking much and I'll leave it in my stereo for a while.

Best Tracks: "Indraught", "Life Aerie Pt. I", "Maze Of Thoughts"
