Soul Embraced is a side project from members of undergound metal heroes, Living Sacrifice. Thier first cd was a decent attempt at death and black metal. Unfortunately, mediocre production and terrible vocals ruined it. Now, older and wiser, they are set to release thier sophomore album on Feubuary 25th.
The opening song, "Immune to Emotion," could have been a left over track from a bad Living Sacrifice recording session. Not a bad track, per se, just lacking in origionality and voice. The 2nd song continues in that same vein.
The 3rd track actually starts off sounding fairly black metal before some clean vocals ala Demon Hunter. A fairly decent song that might make it's way onto some mix tape sometime.
Unfortunately, the rest of the cd goes downhill from there. Most of the songs just sound like bad Living Sacrifice impressions, with one sounding like a badly produced Zao song.
If you are an obsessive Living Sacrifice fan, you will probably find something tasty here to listen to to make the money well spent. Otherwise, you would do better to save for something else.
