Here is some basic information about this band, they are from Vancouver, British Columbia, they started out as a “one man band” started by Andrew using basic equipment such as an Ibanez RG7321, Reaper, Superior Drummer and Zombass. First release ever was entitled “How to get Signed by Rise Records" and that video sky-rocketed with views in days. They have 2 EP releases, the first one is entitled "Mirages" and second is entitled "Pariah”.
I had the chance to listen to it a few times before writing this review so I have a in-depth explanation for this EP. In Comparison to their previous releases, they have made a huge step, as well as a huge change, like style, sound, even the line up is different, originally Andrew and Trevor were vocalists, and that got switched around from Trevor being the only vocalist and Andrew being the new guitarist when Nigel left the band, as well as for style, they Cooper switched from using Ibanez RG927QM to a Agile Septor 827, so they switched from using 7 string to 8 string guitars. Anyway, major changes have been made, in my opinion they have improved a lot since their last EP release back in 2012. They definitely provide a very heavy sound that will blow your mind away for anyone who likes really heavy music, oh and one of the songs has guest vocals by none other than Dan Watson (Ex-Infant Annihilator) but you have to figure out which one!
My Personal favourites off the EP are Abyssal Plain, Blank Face and False Fathers.
Abyssal Plain to me is a very powerful song, the intro riff gives off very powerful vibes that get you worked up inside when the song starts as well as the outro of the song, the outro gives me chills through out my body, this song will definitely put you on your feet.
False Fathers; what stood out most to me about this song is the influence it had, to me, it gave out Josh Travis influence(if you dont know who he is he is the guitarist of Glass Cloud, Ex-Tony Danza Tapdance Extravaganza). Once you hear his stuff you will see the influence.
Blank Face; I consider it an intro to the whole EP because when it first starts off it gives a slow vibe, and it gets you ready for what you are about to experience through out the whole EP.
