You would be forgiven if you made the ignorant assumption that this would sound anything like Persefone's Shin-Ken based on the cover art.

Pretty impressed with how far this band has come. Their first album was nothing to speak of, but this is actually really good. Need to give their sophomore another chance I guess.
