The three tracks here are heavier than that album as well, though not without that In Flames-ish melodic streak they’ve got very good at, and Aaron in particular sounds ferocious. Then on final track, Anchor, they go full-massive with a huge, Architects-y chorus.
It’s by no means the best you’ll ever hear from OMM, but then that’s not the point here, is it? And anyway, it’s still good stuff. One might think of these tracks as a punchbag, a way of staying in shape while you may otherwise lose your gains during downtime. And who knows, once they bed in a bit, when OMM finally play them live, they might have turned into a knockout.
