Setting the tone for the album with a clear nod toward Telefon Tel Aviv's stylish approach. They incorporate a number of unique twists and turns, as the strings prove to be a delightful expansion of their sound. Much more reflective "Take The Time" shines light on the darkness, with industrial churns and whirs emerging out of the background. A trip-hop beat anchors the woozy world of "Is This The World We Want" where his vocal delivery feels outright beautiful, letting his resonate voice command attention. Epic and expansive "Find Yourself" utilizes a driving rhythm to great effect, letting everything evolve naturally. By far the highlight "The Fire Is Burning Inside" shows off Voluptas Mors' attention to detail. Letting tension build up through mantra-like repetition, the song explores an interior monologue with one's own desire. "Turn Off Your Mind" goes for a wistful conclusion to the album, revisiting the orchestral underpinnings of the opener giving it a cyclical quality.
On "Immortality" Voluptas Mors follows the path less traveled with clear-eyed determination.
