This is my 3rd Review, I have done a first thoughts review, a First 2 days review and now this is my first 2 weeks review. I think it is good to do several reviews as on the first few days many are caught up in the hype and just want the album to be amazing.
1. Kirisute Gomen was 9.5/10 now 9.8/10
Raised up because Chorus is just amazing and the riff is also great.
2.Torn Between Charybdis and Scylla 9.8/10 still 9.8/10[/b]
3.Down from the sky was 8.5/10 now 9.8/10
I didnt do it justice first time round, amazing chorus and verses and lyrics in general are superb.
4. Insurrection was 9.3/10 now 7/10
I did lower this alot so I should say why .Just nothing did it for me, first time round i loved the "Acend to the Heavens" but not so much now, its just an ok song,
5. Into the mouth of hell we march was 6.9/10 now 9.5/10
Again another song which was drastically changed in rating. This song is a breath of fresh of air in the album simply because it is the most different, i suppose you could call this a less metal type song but it is still really amazing.
6. Throes of Perdition was 8.7/10 now 9/10
Simply up'ed because i just felt it was the right thing to do.
7.He who spawned the Furies was 8.6/10 now 7/10
Lowered mainly because i really didnt like anything, singing didnt do it for me and neither did the solo's or the chorus, I did however like the "He who spawned the furies" bit, this has one of the best heavy screaming on the album bit but still wasnt a great song.
8.Of Promethus and the crucifix was 9.5/10 now 8.5/10
Just gets a little repeative after a while, still good song, but no bits that made me go "Fuck that bit was cool"
9. The calamity was 8/10 now 8.3/10
Felt it needed changing
10. Like Callisto to a star heaven was 6.4/10 now 7/10
Still dont love it but its an ok song.
11. Shogun 10/10 Still 10/10
12. Poisen, Knife or the noose 7/10
Its ok, doesnt fit with the album well but its an ok song.
13. Upon the shores 9/10
Awesome screaming and Chorus, personnally I think this could of been on the main album.
14. Iron Maiden 7/10
Just a cover lol
Overview 9.3/10 now 9/10
What you have hear is an annoying mixture of songs, for me there are 7 exceptional songs (Kirisute gomen, Into the mouth, Throes of Perdition, Shogun, Torn between,down from the sky and upon the shores) and 6 weak songs(The rest). The Problem i have with the weak songs is that there not bad songs but there just dull. The good songs are just amazing though, I dont know if i would of been more happy if they had instead listed the tracks like this this.
2.Down from the sky
3.Throes of Perdition
4.Into the mouth
5.Upon the shores
