    A great effort from a band with huge potential.

    This EP is a huge improvement over their debut. The songs find a balance between their loud, thrashing guitars and a lower, gentler sound, and in general they sound clearer and stronger (especially the vocals). The only fault with this EP is that it ends just when you want to hear more!

    The best element... isn't the driving guitars or relentless percussion, it's the ability to step up and actually better their sound. [#5, p.91]
  2. While The Secret of Elena's Tomb is over in less than 20 minutes, it's more impressive than what most bands do in an hour.
  3. The record is experimental in the truest sense, each of its tracks signifying a possible point of departure.
