Although, by a generic sound association, they do fall categorically under a more general perception of metalcore, with a lack of new elements, they really know how to do it right with their genre of choice. With powerful guitars, versatile, but lacerating rhythms, poetic elements filled by a sincere, emotional and gentle persuasive style, and a lucid approach to an authentic and intuitive sense of creativity, Back From Hell is a sensible, but strong album, full of life, vitality, soul and frailty.
With each song having a feature of its own – but cohesively maintaining an identity throughout the whole album – coherence, sensibility and a striking sense of serenity seems to be the main components behind Eyes Wide Shot’s music. With the technical elements being just as competent, you can be sure Back From Hell is an emotionally explosive album, one you certainly will wish to listen, if you are into metalcore.
Although I personally haven’t found this album to be a masterpiece, it certainly gets close. Amazing melodies, insinuating harmonies, aggression side by side with passion, poetic rhythms and emotionally aggrandizing passages – superbly adorned by an impeccable musical rhetoric –, definitely makes this album a wonderful work. Back From Hell definitely deserves a great score. A very good album, from a band full of potential!
