結成10年を迎える今年1発目のアイテムは、バンドが持つ〈闇〉を追求したフル作。重いリフでゴリ押す“GALLOWS”や、イントロから怒濤の疾走を見せる“MERCILESS”などは、ハードかつヘヴィーな音像を美しいメロディーと共存させるというバンドの理念を突き詰めたものに。また、音は圧倒的に凶暴ながら歌詞では〈闇に立ち向かえ〉と綴られる“PHOENIX”では、そこに刻まれたバンドのアティテュードに胸が熱くなった。

[English Translation]
The first release this year as they celebrate their 10th anniversary is a full-length album digging deep into the band's 'darkness'. Tracks such as heavy-handed, heavy-riffed "GALLOWS" or "MERCILESS" with its raging stampede from the first note of the intro are the testimonies to the band's pursue of their philosophy to achieve peaceful coexistence between hard, heavy sound images and beautiful melodies. The band has smartly enweaved their spirits into the songs also. For instance, "PHOENIX" creates a great contrast between the devastatingly violent tone and the actual message of the lyrics "face darkness fearlessly", a neat and affecting arrangement for the listener.
