Release length: 3:31
When you break the song down, it sounds like the modern In Flames sound, and really focuses on utilizing some Industrial elements to the music, especially to create some background ambience that sounds like pure white noise or something one might expect to hear from audio distorting from film ripping from a projector. The overall presentation of the song, however, feels like a cold and stylish Static-X worship song with traditional In Flames melodics. It’s an interesting approach given their current track record, and it becomes a track that needs to grow on the listener, but even then the song isn’t the strongest. The additional background elements make it sounds a little more unique compared to some of their previous material, but not by that much, holding more of a Reroute to Remaine vibe to the music, which was considered by many one of the worst In Flames albums.
Die hard fans of In Flames will more then likely enjoy this song, given it’s heavier then usual music, though that heaviness is severely countered by such a simplistic and lighter chorus. The stylish feel of the music isn’t really anything new, and it helps the song out, but the constant shifting of the cold atmosphere existing and then not existing is frustrating. It’s not one of the best In Flames songs recorded, but it’s still an alright track you can get a few spins out of at least. So, for what you will pay until the full-length hits, it’s worth experience at least, and for ninety nine cents in U.S. currency, there’s worse out there you can spend it on. Die hard fans of In Flames will definitely find more enjoyment with this track, but just don’t expect the world from this one song.
