FOES’ ability to make complex ideas accessible and create hooks out of the unexpected has been further refined on ‘The Summit Lies Skyward‘. Big riffs and intelligent rhythmic arrangements are present but unimposing, providing an intricate base for the atmospheric backdrop and emotive vocals at the forefront. From the opening intricate guitar work in The Choir Invisible to the metallic stomp on ‘Young Sovereign and the infectious chorus in Sworn Host, ‘The Summit Lies Skyward‘ has huge musical diversity, yet somehow FOES unify these extremes into a sound that is completely unique to themselves.
