Supergroups always tend to be a wee bit disappointing. There’s always a big hype, they put out a couple of records that, though good, could easily be trumped by ones of their respective bands, and then go on their merry way. Lavinia, however, is one supergroup that did it the right way: they took all of their extraordinary talents and combined them to put out a fantastic record.

Featuring members of the Mylene Sheath roster, guitarist/vocalist Nate Shumaker (ex-Eksi Ekso, On Fire, The Burning Paris, Everdown) bassist Philip Jaimeson (main guitarist of Caspian),  drummer Alex Mihm (Eksi Ekso), guitarist Josh Megyesy (ex-On Fire, The Burning Paris, The Fatal Flaw) produced one hell of an album, and just in time for the closing year. The vocals, the part I hate most about any post-rock band, were absolutely beautiful. They really blended with the darker atmosphere of this album and overall, it’s a great listen. At first, I didn’t know what to expect, but after a while (about 1 or 2 plays through the whole album), I got what TILBU was all about. Seriously, buy this album, you will not be disappointed.

Is This Revolutionary?: Well, post-rock supergroups are very hard to come by, so definitely in that aspect, it is. In addition, I loved the whole feel of this album; the albums really bring out the emotion in this release, whereas in ones from other bands, it just holds them back.

Rating: 4/5 Powder Kegs.
