, new riffing territory (“Her Silent Language”), and some new avenues (“Arkhangelsk”) that DARK TRANQUILLITY traverse that give the album a fresh feel.
However, that’s not to say that We are the Void is some 180 degree shift. The melancholy, the soul, invincible riffs (“I Am the Void”), and tasteful and tight musicianship are here as they’ve always been. New bassist Daniel Antonsson fits in seamlessly with the rest of the band with not only his bass lines but also his songwriting.
As mentioned above, the baring of the soul and the deep, honest emotions and thoughts expressed on We are the Void exemplify the greatness of this band. We are the Void reminds one that life is short and thus, time should never be wasted on lesser music. (Century Media Records)
