Boring as hell - 10%

Mordaine, July 8th, 2005

I've heard people say these guys sound like Dimmu Borgir but to say that about this album is an insult to Dimmu Borgir. Of course the purpose of this is not to talk about Dimmu Borgir but of Tidfall's boring piece of crap "Instinct Gate." The first song I listened to told me everything about this album I needed to know. They were trying way too hard. The drumming is the same throughout the whole album, it just blasts(and by blasts I mean shittily blasts, not the good kind of blasting) and drones on. It's kinda hard to tell the difference between the keyboards and guitars at times. Although it doesn't really help trying to distinguish between the two because they're boring as hell anyways(oh and they're overpowered by the "blasting" drumming). On their previous album they had atleast catchy riffs and keyboards which consituted a decent album, they decided it would be a good idea to get rid of both those things and leave you with barely anything at all. Bottom line about this album, don't buy it, don't download it, avoid it at all costs.
