To be honest, I didn't like Gattaca's side of the split that much... I think their earlier stuff was more impressive. But Axidance's side is really good (except for 4th track, maybe). The progress is obvious: their first album, released in 2008, was just poorly recorded neocrust with very naive lyrics, and now we have a philosophical, conceptual release strongly influenced by metal of various sorts. As of today, they're probably the best band in the whole Old Roots New Shoots circle, and I hope to hear even better stuff from them in the future.
