Track by Track –
Mono: Crumbs for the Murder – They start the album with a sort of taste of how they have changed, and I think it is actually for the better. The guitar riffs are very good as they always are with Destroy the Runner, a great job on clean vocals, I became addicted to this song the first time I listened to it. 10/10
Di: Isabella’s – Another song with an awesome guitar riff throughout the entire song, and it just has this sort of hypnotizing factor that got me hooked after the first time. It is a great song they show what kind of music they could make. 10/10
Tri: Mr. and Mrs. Cuckoldom – Honestly I think this is one of the weaker songs on the album, but that doesn’t mean it is bad but it is really still a good song, not as much of a hook, but it is still a track that is worth giving a shot. 8/10
Tetra: A Bag of Marbles – And right back to the awesome addicting songs that I love. It took me no time at all to tell that I would love this song. I don’t know what they did, but these songs are very addicting and I have been hooked since the first time I’ve listened to them. 10/10
Penta: I, Lucifer – The title track of the album is still just as good, usually the title track is one of my least favorite tracks on the album. There are some very good guitar riffs and lyrics in this song. I have been listening to this one a lot lately as well. 10/10
Hexa: It’s Always Cold in Paris – Very different flow to this song. Kind of a generic type of chorus. But sometimes generic is the way to go on a song or two in an album. But it is still a pretty good song. 9/10
Hepta: A Pathetic Psalm – This song kind of has the same feel as their last album. I didn’t really get hooked on this song. It is still a very decent song, 7/10.
Octa: Luxuria – They seem to keep going back to the heavier aspects from their last album, this song is much better than the last one, it actually has that hook, that just gets you. 9/10
Ennea: On Falling Leaf – This one starts out with what I would like to say is an attempt of having a metal type feel without going to try and be to heavy, with some pretty bad background screams. The Clean vocals really help this song out. 8/10
Deca: A Novel of War – This has that sort of aggressive feel at the beginning, and then it calms down to what the rest of the album is really at. It sounds pretty cool. 9/10
Hendeca: A Mountain So Big, A Question So Small – Such a boring start for the last song on an album, but it all starts to come together as the song progresses. 10/10.
