danielblanchette This album has some of the best riffs I have heard in a long time. Groovy enough to bang your head, but just weird enough to be interesting. A few breakdowns, a few shreds and this is a very well balanced album.

Progressive death metallers Release The Blackness "Tragedy" is a massive sounding record, full of fast technical riffing wrapped in layers of harmonies, ambience and orchestrations. The tracklist makes the album a journey through the experience of sorrow, using reoccurring musical themes to recreate the repeating and ever-evolving cycles addressed in the lyrics. The most noticeable influences come from bands like Gojira, Beyond Creation, Fit For an Autopsy, Rivers of Nihil, Opeth and many more, including classical music and traditional oriental music.

The main theme behind "Tragedy" is the variety of ways in which men perceive and face tragic events throughout their life. Whenever we live a dark time we are forced into a cycle of sorrow that can lock us forever or make us stronger and better human beings. Some might negate the events living by memories and illusions, others may be swallowed by apathy and become numb to feelings, but in the end these are all steps we have to go through before being able to break the cycle. The songs in the album target various possible reactions to tragic events mixed with personal experiences, thus creating an intimate and raw narration."
