“Dreadful Moments” really shows off the progressive nature of the band, and surprisingly a lot more djent than usual. The transitions are really impressive, as the tempo changes, yet they’re still able to keep the intensity and groove together.
The album does lose a bit of pace with “Teacher, Teacher!” but they quickly come back on track, but that’s not unlike Jinjer and it is something that you can appreciate about them. They’re not a “hit-making machine” (although they do make them) but they strive to make every song something incredible, unique, and different from the previous track, especially considering the short instrumental – “Micro” – that needs of the 20 minute run. 2019 is off to a fantastic start!
