Likely the finest quality Split LP so far in DM. For me, Cartilage are the better half of this smashing DM split, tending toward the heavy & epic simultaneously with subtle musical intricacy. Guitars work in power chords with an emphasis less on faster strumming & integration of multi-rhythm than others, eg., Amorphis. Guitar riffs wander over the spectrum, from simple chunky riffs to more complex, almost progressive heavy metal styles. When at top performance, the riffs are exceptional. Superb!
Favorite track: CARTILAGE - Blessing in Depth.
