These six new cuts from goth/electronic outfit, D:O, are less orchestrated than former releases. Here, D:O has morphed into a prog black metal duo. This EP wields more 808 kick drum and a denser song structure. “Paid in Flesh” has that signature speed metal double-bass drumming going on and is probably the most solid song. The remaining tunes have well-crafted melodies but tend to lose momentum when transitioning to another part of the song.
