Ending on a pulsating note with title track Only to Rise, this song bears all the hallmarks of a relentless jam. Lynchs’ no frills riff work and Tichys’ animalistic skin battering are monstrous. It would be a crying shame if this project was a one off. Sweet and Lynch clearly have a smokin’ hot compatibility. Their energy and enthusiasm are all over this wonderful album.
There is way too much to digest just on a few spins on this immense project, I am sure that I missed probably more then half of the meanings of each song and it’s little idiosyncrasies, but hey it’s never easy to digest progressive metal let alone something tackling the secrets of the universe okay, so cut me some slack.
