From start to finish Temisto has tried to experiment blending different genres of metal. You can hear a little black metal, doom metal, and a bunch of others. The main issue here is that none of these genres really meld together well at any one point. Yes, musically it is good. The drums and guitars sound great, but the compilation of music never seems to gel well with itself. At times, there is some great drum parts and few good solos, but ultimately what is left is just noise. This being their first album, the band definitely has room to grow. Their style hasn't come together yet, but in time, it is possible for them to pull it off.
In general, this album is pretty bad. If you like obscure metal, and stuff from way out in left field, this album may fit your tastes perfectly. But for the average metal head, this CD is best left alone.
