Clean playing starts off the album while stringed instruments can also be heard briefly before going into a heavier doom metal direction along with all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them and the female vocals add in elements of goth metal as well as the music alternating between both clean and heavy parts.
At times the music gets very progressive while the riffs also bring in a great amount of melody along with the solos and leads being done in a very melodic fashion as well as most of the tracks being very long and epic in length, one of the tracks is an instrumental and when blast beats are utilized they add in a touch of death metal.
Paragon Collapse plays a style of atmospheric doom metal that is very progressive and goes back to the 90's era when bands like Anathema, My Dying Bride and The Gathering moved away from the harsh vocals, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover depression, madness, love, suicide and mental struggles.
In my opinion Paragon Collapse are a very great sounding atmospheric and progressive doom metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Endless Dream" "Nirvana" and "Deliverance". 8 out of 10.
