The content of this EP is solid. “Emission Line Spectrum” opens up the release with an eerie progression only to smack you with the edge of down tuned guitar work. It does this for a little while before fading into atmosphere to transition into the title track. “Aurora Borealis” provides some interesting rhythmic work and atmospheric ideas. However, the best part of this song are the contributions from guitarists Sithu Aye and Plini to close out the track. “Dark Matter” makes for one of the heaviest segments of the release. With a djenty backbone and tight playing, it makes for a winner. “Binary Stars” is easily one of the most melodic additions to the track list. It brings forth some creative musical ideas and a phenomenal guitar solo from fellow Polish countryman, Gru. “Skylight” is easily my favorite song off the release. Featuring intense emotion, intelligent composition, and another cameo from the amazing Gru – it makes for a great way to close things out.
Rumor has it, Widek has some new music in the works for a possible 2013 release. You better keep an eye out for this guy. He has serious potential to do more big things in the future.
