ArpKor Sight of Emptiness, the costarican experimental export nr 1! No chance to put a label on these dudes in any way... However i think melodic deathmetal sounds pretty good! They like to mix styles and add some beautifull clean vocals in their songs like the one of Christian Älvestam (ex scar symmetry, unmoored, the few against many, miseration and SOLUTION .45!!!) I also welcome the electronic sounds in a few of the songs! However: this album is definitelly good! Im glad i've discovered these guys! Favorite track: Deception (feat. Christian Älvestam).

INSTINCTS: "Tells stories based on the region´s flora and fauna; the richest wildlife imaginable. The album focuses on nature, and its gravest threat: mankind. Songs are based on animals, insects and natives. Lyrics explore two different perspectives: animals´ lifestyle in their environment, and humans not being able to respect it and co-exist with them."
