Rating: 8 Most anticipated release for me at the moment. The song Dead Winter Days sounds pretty damn great.

  There's a lot of Noekk in the new Empyrium... but it's a great record nonetheless

exactly what i think, a lot of blues and progressive elements here make them more varied than before, but the production could be far better than what have been.

Rating: 10 I'm listening to this album over and over again. oh I wish this album had no end

Rating: 9 It's perfect, album of the year for me.
Death_95 - 20.07.2014 at 01:40  
Rating: 10 A vast difference between this and their previous albums, but just as brilliant!
Winterheir - 20.07.2014 at 05:23  
  A masterpiece, no doubt. Seeing as so much time has passed since Weiland I wasn't quite sure what to expect ... a totally new and different band? A revisitation of the many familiar Empyrium elements? It seems we received both as The Turn Of The Tides sounds like no other group but Empyrium yet it also sounds completely different than any of the band's previous four full-lengths - a legacy not only untainted but also crowned! This album will certainly end up being one of my favorites of the year.

Rating: 8 After two spins I'd say it's a bit underwhelming. Hopefully it's a grower, because this was one of my most anticipated albums for sure.

Right now this really doesn't come close to the first two albums for me, sadly.

I agree mate, it's pretty good album but a 10? Not too convinced, I hope it's a grower too..

Indeed, i gave it an "8" at the beginning, ended up giving it a "10".

Rating: 9 I thought this album was terribly bland and boring the first listen, but holy shit is it a grower. This is also my first experience with Empyrium.

  Over here I keep and keep trying but it's useless, I'm not liking this one at all

Are you saying that Noekk sounds...bad?

Rating: 8 So far its been a good listen, but sadly it pales in comparison to Empyrium's past releases both metal and neofolk. The first 3 tracks are excellent to say the least.

No, I actually like Noekk, but it is very different from early Empyrium. I was very skeptical about the new sound, but I ended up being pleasantly surprised!
