Comparing the two albums, you may at first like STST more, as the intro to it, To End the Rapture, is amazing. On the other hand, Waking the Fallen (the song), is rather weak. But after the first songs are over, WTF's superiority completely emerges. The second song is Unholy Confessions, a brilliant work of heavy metal art, wich is creepily reminicent of 80's metal. It then goes into Chapter 4, an incredible vocal and instrumental powerhouse. Once you've reached Reminisions, you know this band is simply amazing, because the changes in tempo and volume, the at times extremely heavy and at others light and soft, its just a musical explosion of greatness.
Then the album takes a break from the brilliance, and does the song Desecrate Through Reverence. While this song is still great, its no where near the past three songs. But there's no worry, because then you get into one of the best songs on the album, Eternal Rest, which starts out with a CRAZY guitar solo by one of the greatest guitar players of all time, Synyster Gates. The song then slows down into one of the just plain coolest peices of music ever written. Then you get to Second Heartbeat, my personal favorite track on the album.Read more ›
