    The saxophone lines and other decidedly non-metal trappings only work because Yakuza (as they prove on this disc) have a hard-beating metal heart.

    While a somewhat trained ear could tease out what came from where, it's a lot easier in this case just to sit back and enjoy work that seems to value interesting textures and arrangements - but not at the expense of the songs themselves.

    The band compel with each of their unique flourishes, which work together to enhance the listening experience, making Beyul a thought-provoking, yet easily digestible album.
