Moving 'onward' with sophmore album
Posted March 29, 2011

Just last year, Facedown Records' Onward To Olympas crashed on the scene with the phenomenal "This World Is Not My Home". Now about 14 months later we get "The War Within Us". It's just about as good as their debut. Now, lets get in the warzone.

Intro track, "The Continuance" literally picks up where the debut left off until blasting into the title track. We hear Kramer starts belting out the growls, and then.....what's this? A new clean vocalist replaced Justin Gage. It's an improvement from Gage's somewhat whiney voice. This adds some extra power to the already powerful lyrics. The only complaint is the next four songs are barely over or under 3 minutes. They are great but are over before you know it. "Structures", while short, shows how the band grew in the technical riff category. Good chorus as well. "The March" slows things down but has lyrics of redemption: "One sacrifice brings us back to life/ one Man who died, saved our lives"  The last track "Rebuilt" ends with the words: "We are everlasting"

"The war within us is so impossible to win alone" 
is the overall message of the album. Even though the music sounds like a war (in a good way), these lyrics couldn't be more right. Metalheads everywhere, do yourself a favor and give this one a listen. And make sure your fighting this war on God's side because: "We're fighting a war that's already been won"
