This is a really impressive debut album thanks to the band fully committing to its collective influences, refusing to take an average position in favour of pushing hard at both the heavy angle and the melodic.

Opening with an immediate blast of heavy riffs and the kind of screamed vocals you’d usually associate with black metal, ‘Search and Discover’ doesn’t give you long to acclimatise before it diverts to soaring melodies that are far removed from the early, aggressive tones.
