Release date: 22. 4. 2008

Alternative Press Review: 3/5

My review: 2/5

On their third full lenght, SOTY pushed their sound further…hardened it. But Iis this good? In my opinion, not really. Beacuse this doesn’t sounds like original SOTY anymore, their amazingly melodic post-hardcore/screamo, that made me fell in love with them in the first place. On this record, post-hardcore is mostly leaning to metalcore and it just doesn’t sound right. The only exceptions are first single Wake Up and Message To The World. On their next record, they should return to their roots instead of desperately trying to run away from them.

Wake Up
