Soul Embraced

Review by

Soul Embraced are back with a vengeance. Mythos is their fifth album and, arguably, their best to date.

This month, there have been some great releases, but I did not expect Soul Embraced to be one of them. First off, everything on this album is solid. Vocalist Chad Moore seems to have improved over time, and then, they have these supremely placed guest vocals.

The most notable thing about this album is that Rocky Gray is no longer playing guitar, but is instead behind the drums. Cody Smith is now handling the guitar duties.

This works great, and the album has some amazing riffs, which are what make it work. The riffs and songwriting feel right, there are some classic SE moments, and now there are new SE moments where they show that they have stepped up their game and come out slugging with a fury.

I’m glad I made these songs, no matter how personal they are."
