Rated 2.5/5 (50%) (4 Votes)
Third album for Conspiracy, who despite having a generic, boring name (there are 18 – count 'em 18 other bands named this) continue to put out music that is at least interesting. Finally with an album cover that goes more with their sound, this time the band (or rather, the one guy) has produced an album that is less Black Metal sounding and more experimental. Sole member Carpathian Wolf has produced an album heavy with keyboards and much more classically influenced.
This is a big step back from the aggression of past albums, rather going for a sort of Hollenthon/Septicflesh sound mixing raspy vocals with pumped up synths and orchestrations. I have to say a big problem is that the keys sound very candified and don't really manage to pull off the orchestral thing. This dilutes what heaviness there is and makes it sound like rather an afterthought. The sound is too clean, and that makes the vocals not fit and sound odd. In places he manages to put this together in a compelling way, but only here and there. Overall the compositions are baggy and lack focus, and so this becomes a rather inert album of concepts and sounds, rather than music.
