Albums like this come along seldomly, and even more so under the greater 'metal' genre/arc. Every single song is a masterpiece, there is not a single filler on the entire album(12 songs deep btw). In a genre that many people find repetitive, Surrounds creates beautiful depth and character with every note, and fantastical lyric production, true poetry. The band knows what their sound is, and that clearly comes through, you feel every song. These are songs to listen to, not background noise.
