    [ As Hope Dies ]


    Birthplace and Burial Site

    Opening with a haunting piano and soundscape track that wouldn't be out of place on a Nine Inch Nails album, this quickly erupts into heavy, yet melodic, black metal influenced insanity. And I was expecting bad metalcore. What a pleasant surprise. This is really good. The harsh vocals are vicious, and the occasional clean vocals are well done. Another beautiful piano interlude ends track 5, "To Mend the Wound of a Plagued Heart." Not including the instrumental intro, there are only 5 songs on this disc, just over 23 minutes total. This is disappointing, but definitely leaves me wanting more.
