Well, no suprises - sounds like new Katatonia. A bit of new found urgency in the drumming, slightly heavier riffing too. Looking forward to hearing more of the album now.

"Buildings" seems to split the sounds of 'Night is the New Day' and 'The Great Cold Distance' albums pretty evenly. 'Dead End Kings' and the new My Dying Bride album will make for perfect fall weather music.
