“‘Illuminate’ is a solid release from the quintet. The word unique has been used to describe the band, but I don’t recognise it. I notice influences from countless bands in the genres of metalcore and metallic hardcore that have come before them. While She Sleeps and Parkway Drive as just two examples of similar bands that made their names from producing brutal breakdown with incredible melodies, and awesome anthemic choruses. Hopefully,Confessions of a Traitor can follow in similar footsteps. With this EP, they are certainly going in the right direction.”

For fans of: While She Sleeps, Parkway Drive, Bury Tomorrow Bring Me The Horizon (pre-2015)
