After their EP "Standing at This Safe Place…“ and their debut full-length "Behind The Infinite Scenes“,
the five guys from Freiburg, south Germany are back with their sophomore album “Milestones”. The
CD starts with the sound of the sea rushing followed by the great opener “Lambs and Wolves”.
During the following nine tracks the listener almost doesn’t get the chance to breathe, tearing
forward, between powerful guitar riffs and intense screams, leaving only short times of melodic
breathers. The band stays true to their roots and understands in a perfect way to connect elements
of Hardcore, Screamo and Metalcore with catchy melodies, in an instrumental and vocal way. The
top-notch production brings this release down to an impressive complete work.
The lyrics on Milestones take you on a life journey through anguish and pain to hope and security.
They are about moments in life that sharpen you and make you the person you are. Like the music,
the lyrics are changing between a burdensome/oppressive heaviness and a light at the horizon
letting hope be felt. Fans of Underoath, August Burns Red, Thrice or Norma Jean will definitely enjoy
