|2. Mine Is Yours To Drown In (Ours Is The New Tribe)|
|3. We, The Gods|
|4. Pentecost III|
|5. Memento Mori|
Of the five tracks I'll start with the poorest & it's worth noting that whereas all the tracks on 'The Crestfallen EP' were specifically crafted 'Pentecost III' does sound a little rushed & thrown together at times. The title track is a forgettable instrumental whilst 'Memento Mori' a re-working of an old demo thrash-bash that relays the band's fascination with both death metal & dear old Iron Maiden.
The other three tracks are far better. Its also here that you start to notice the heavy Celtic Frost influences that are creeping into both the music & the vocals. 'We, the Gods' takes up where 'Serenades' left off & 'Mine Is Yours to Drown In' reminds me a lot of 'Sweet Tears' (also from 'Serenades'), albeit more upbeat, with a touch of mysticism & Duncan's clanging bassline that sythes through the mix.
Best of all is the opener 'Kingdom' with White mournfully wailing over a bleak, picked guitar line before launching into another grunting session behind a bludgeoning, climactic riff. It is also the only song that would offer any genuine hint as to the direction the band would be heading on 'The Silent Enigma' album & beyond. It's the clear high point on a reasonable release but you have to wonder what might have been if tensions inside the Liverpudlians' camp weren't running so high.
