Jason Mordecai This is pure emotion at its best!! RAW to the core!!! Favorite track: crisis.

MZTN 前作での極上フィードバックノイズ&エモバイオレンスな音楽性を経て、本作では静けさのある音楽性へと移行した。しかし、激しくなくなったわけではなく、その分ダイナミクスのある表現になっていると感じる。深いところはとことん深く、繊細に、ダークに突き進んでいく彼らは沈黙を聴かせるセンスがある。つまりCity Of Caterpillerのようなセンスだが、もちろん彼らはそれをアップデートしている。現在のSkramzシーン的にも彼らのような感覚でプレイできるバンドは少ない。 Favorite track: graven.

Emily This is absolutely one of my favorite albums of the year. Beauty and brutality mixed into one hell of an album. Favorite track: pulses.

Trveheimer this is top notch screamo. despite being one of the most intense bands of the last years anyway, ostraca added a lot darkness and musical variety to their style. fucking intense, emotional extremes and beautiful soundscapes.

1.
big star 03:08
everybody’s dreams are losing steam from the start spoonfed celebrity and so, death obsessed, go figure are empowered? deluded? or just pacified? squabbling for the smallest thrones in our corners like right now i saw the path of decline long before you fell and already, i can see your big star falling
2.
graven 00:51
if our poetry may lengthen and conceal if our light will linger and overwhelm if our memories neither blur nor fade then i will outlive you you will outlive me
3.
crisis 06:55
glue back together what you know won’t hold put it off again at least until the money’s there who’s ready for forever yet? ever? can you hold your breath a little longer? one more year, one more year, one more year of waiting for your life to start
4.
pulses 04:11
ticking clock substitute heartbeat we find no attachment without patterns like dots become eyes as noise shapes words blink twice for yes move so i know you’re alive or like a candle that neither flickers nor dies you are beyond understanding ticking clock or a heartbeat what’s the difference either way
5.
in passing 03:32
6.
nemesis 06:50
enemy mine, will you face me? my one dedicated opponent eyes and shoulders set against me ready to fight ready to die never showed up around every corner is a turned back yes you suffer, but… why not so when your bones splinter when your cry is cut short as you stand against the steamroller don’t dream for a second that the driver bats an eye
