All that remains is most definitely a remarkable band. The field of music they chose to place themselves in is metal, but it is more of a progressive style of metal. This CD is not as brutal as their others, but in reality, the others were not that brutal to begin with. The guitarist are pure finess, not power chord, riff chugging, no tallent musicians. If your looking for something truly heavy, this will not be your cup of tea. I loved this CD, personally. It sounds to me like they have stuck with their style and progressed upon it. Heavy, melodic choruses, catchy tunes you cant help but sing along with, solos that blow your mind, unique vocal styling, unique song writing, I could go on. I dont think they have changed much throughout their career. I recommend it to anyone who really likes the band. KSE as well.
