The mood is definitely there, the music instrumentally aside from being heavy is atmospheric. There's moments of eery calm that really put the listener on edge. Of course a good narrative is nothing without good music and More Of Myself To Kill deliver on that front as well. Every member gets their due on these songs and nothing feels lost. The bass is heavily featured and allowed to do its own thing resulting in a sort of funk and groove style of metalcore. The guitarwork is chaotic and yet not out of control, it adds to the eery mood by seemingly toying with you. The vocals are solid throughout going from smoother singing and harsh gutturals. They flow nicely along the ebb and flow of the instrumentals.
I'd say my only real issue with the album is despite the songs being 6-10 minutes long a piece the album ends up feeling short. There's only nine tracks total including three audio logs and a completely ambient track. It would have been nice to see the story stretched out a bit more. The ambient track did a lot to create atmosphere and it could have used more tracks like that. Although this is a solid start and I'd like to see them continue with the concept.
More Of Myself To Kill have crafted a nice start to a story with Creation: A. They've demonstrated that they certainly have the chops to make a solid concept album and pull the listener into the story by setting the atmosphere and mood. While ultimately the album could have used a bit more substance it's the beginning of something great. I would like to see them take this idea to the next level with their future work.
