Broken – A sombre feel, sung with lots of feeling. Interesting variety of arrangements, varying in volume throughout. Brought to life by Nick’s distinctive vocals, which would be well placed in any genre of rock. His diversity of vocal strategies suit the versatility of the instrumentals well. You really feel the message within this song, embodied within its well chosen title and lyrics. In fact, the whole track seems to symbolise ending and its associated closure. If so, then it does it well. Alter Eden certainly know how to express and convey deep and meaningful emotions in song.
Fade – Here is the beginning of a new chapter! A much heavier feel, whilst still speaking of the fallout from the past. This track, though, carries a much more positive feel. Its’ sound is almost like a re-birth or the birth of something new. Seems somewhat experimental in its nature. A very assertive ending. I’m intrigued to hear what comes next!
