Well, not as good as Cryonics, but still, this is a good effort from Hot Cross, which is well worth your money. Good dynamic structures, ranging from chaotic, technical riffage, with the typical Hot Cross spirit, to nice emotional relax-parts. But Sometimes I feel its a bit uninspired, and track nr. 5, which is a instrumental kind of a interlude-song, would have been better to put on a future full-length or something for a filler. And the Ep is a little bit too short too. When track number 6, which is a great one suddenly ends, you're sitting left a little bit let down, cause you're wanting more. But I guess thats the thing with Hot Cross. When they broke up after two albums, and two EP-s, at least I was terribly disappointed, and wanted more.

This cd is amazing. It is hard these days to call things "screamo" because that term has been so distorted and given a bad name. anyways, if you are into real screamo, bands like Saetia or eve This Day Forward circa In Response, then i highly suggest checking this out.

Hot Cross is truly dynamic. They exibit only the best 20 minutes of music that could be made. I could go on about how great the guitar is and once it pulls you in you dont want it to let you go. Or I could ramble on about how the drums bounce you into a sense of action that brings meaning to menial tasks otherwise dull and monotonous. More speech would move along to the bass lines that hum you through the day. But I wont talk about those things becasue nothing said about them can change an opinon that you have or dont have about the album because I didn't say it.

This EP is pretty freakin ill. Hot Cross is a band that derives from a few big emo groups from the late 90s (Saetia, Neil Perry, Off Minor) but their sound is progressive in the greatest sense of the word. Ever since their debut EP A New Set of Lungs, through their LP Cryonics, and up until now they've been honing and tweaking their sound they have been tweaking the conventional idea of emotional hardcore to the point that it's almost unrecognizable under a flurry of technical and emphatic playing. This EP is the most technically proficient output of Hot Cross and for some reason it rocks more. While their past efforts had been more dissonant and passionate, this album has a more standard, pentatonic approach to a lot of riffs and chord progressions. Don't worry though, the riffs still come out of no where at blazing speed and they are still using the three vocalist approach, which really adds an urgency and intensity to the sound but this CD is much faster and technical than their prior CDs just in terms of how ridiculous the riffing is. They have dropped a lot of the more interesting time signatures and brooding instrumental sections in favor of just melting your face in 4/4. My only complaint is that it's only an EP and seems to end right as I really want to hear more.

This is probably one of the best cds I've ever bought. Hot Cross are have gotten so much better since they've started. They progressed all around and have created a totally original and distinguishing sound between the fucking great guitar work and Billy's awesome voice.

The fact that this is only 6 songs sucks, but at the same time is awesome because theres no filler, so they definatly didn't just throw some shit together to make it longer, and the shortness will leave you begging for more.

This is the only time I've ever reviewed an album on here and wanted to give it more then 5 stars. Cause this totally deserves it.

Very rad stuff. Its nice to see a band evolve while still holding on to the things that made them great in the first place.

Oh my lord, this is incredible. I expected big things from this new E.P., but nothing this prodigious. I think the guitarists are now on speed 24/7, as I convulse every time I hear songs like Better a Corpse than a Nun. The instrumentals are phenomenal, with very fast dual guitar solo action going on, chorded bass lines and frantic drumming that holds it all together. The vocals have gotten a bit more melodic, and could almost be compared (in style change) to Cedric's ATDI-Mars Volta shift. There is still some talking/screaming going on, but to a lesser extent. The song clip here gives you a great idea of what they sound like. Track 5 is instrumental, and so far I love every song, but I think Solanka is probably my fav. If you like Level-Plane stuff like Yage, Saetia, and the likes, you will fall in love with this. Peace.
