On their debut they had their own style of tech groove riffs and production that set a new benchmark for crusty heaviness. So what happened? It sounds like they discovered Meshuggah between albums and made this follow-up as a tribute to them. The riffs are totally derivitive and the production is boringly cleaned up. The only glimpse of creativity is the goth bit at the end of track 4. Forget this album and buy the self-titled if you haven’t heard it.
EDGEND – A New Identity / UPC : 734923006237 / Cat # NMR-522 / STREET DATE Oct 13th. / Genre – Melodic Power Thrash Metal : Brilliant guitar driven melodic power metal sounding like DIO meets SYMPHONY X, but oh so much more in there with the middle eastern flavors added in, a VERY strong debut with mature songwriting, and some extremely tasty technical prowess showing without over the top pyrotechnics. The bands vocalist has a masculine ruff edge and creates beautiful melodies and memorable chorus lines that draw the listener in again and again. Edgends debut *A New Identity* will surely solidify this bands place in metal history as an extremely solid start, already awaiting their next one. Metal fans, this one will surprise you, don’t overlook it or you will regret it!

good cd just way to many skits it equals to about 9 songs and there all pretty short so it seems its over before it starts…just make music
Wow. This is what it would sound like if those zombies from 28 weeks later with the rage virus would sound like if they made a band. Pure fricken chaos. This CD is adrenaline purified. Even makes Ion Dissonance, which I like, seem tamer in comparison. Gotta love the song titles. You must get this now.
Nashville truly is Music City, a band like this could only come from a city such as this.
This album marks another maturity in TDTE’s evolution. Such a great album by a great band!
This album is unspeakably amazing. Danza punish their instruments like they caught them breaking into their practice space. The title track has one of the strongest grooves I’ve ever heard. True, the production is a lot cleaner than the last “album” (which was their demo + 3 new songs at the beginning, I believe), but this happens when a label is willing to throw up some cash for a band to record themselves properly. The only “bad” thing about this CD, is that it makes all of the other crazy music I listen to sound tame in comparison. Seriously.
