moopet It's like technical progressive black doom or something. Sounds like a bit of everything, in a good way. Favorite track: Dead End.

Matthew Rukgaber This is the most djent, discordant, and industrial of the TDWA releases. Although instrumental, it is very Gojira-like in parts. With few exceptions (like track 10), the soaring melodicism of other releases is minimized for percussive, jabbing guitars and irregular rhythms. The machine-like nature of a lot of the music stand quite in contrast to the organic image on the cover art. But those sorts of juxtapositions seem to be what TDWA does best. Favorite track: He Who Saw The Darkness.

Jacob R. Dring Drawn in by intriguing artwork and band name, kept there by melodically innovative riffs and guitar effects, combining atmosphere with heaviness. Almost too 'djenty' for my taste to call it spectacular, but tracks like He Who Saw the Darkness, Paradigm, and In Vain are great listens. Looking forward to more. Favorite track: Paradigm.

Sean Wickenheisser This album is a must for any fan of instrumental metal. Saying that they are similar to Animals as Leaders is an easy description that doesn't do this band justice for its uniqueness. For example some songs have post metal vibes, the song "Ashes" has an exotic sound, Checkpoint 4 is upbeat, and Earthkeeper is hypnotic but in a good way. This album is one of those where you kick back and let it take you on a journey. Favorite track: Yesterday's Tomorrow.
