Gifts From Enola - Gifts From Enola (2010)

Yeeeeeees, this is the definition of "ULTIMATE". For its creation has been foretold for eons. Our parents were told of it by their parents and so on... And now, it cometh. Prepare yourself, this package will arrive in all its definitive glory and bring you to your knees... weeping... The vinyl version of the new Gifts From Enola album is available on opaque baby blue vinyl (limited to 100 - SOLD OUT) or opaque orange vinyl (limited to 300). The jackets will be on thick 20pt/350gsm stock with a die-cut hole in the center. The inner sleeve will be printed in full color and include artwork that shows through the die-cut hole on the outer jacket. Then the clear protective polybags will have the bands name printed directly on them across the center. Sound awesome? Yes it does. Why? Because it is!!! The CD version of the new, self-titled behemoth by Gifts From Enola. Comes in a 4 panel digipak printed on thick, recycled stock with awesome, screenprinted disc faces. All artwork, design, and layout was done by Three Bears Design (they handled From Fathoms as well), and the new shirt was designed for the preorder by Three Bears Design. Incorporates the album artwork and is printed on Alternative Apparel brand shirts. Just look at it for a second.... yeah, it's freakin awesome - you neeeeed it!!

Gifts From Enola have created an album that finally and perfectly captures the intensity of their live show and expands upon all of their past ideas ten-fold. Or maybe they've simply taken past ideas to their logical extremes, destroyed them, and birthed brand new ideas from their ashes. Either way, the band continues to evolve at an astonishing rate and further pushes their sonic spectrum into an unclassifiable area that is all at once hard to explain, but impossibly easy to listen to. And we don't mean that in the "easy-listening" genre of music sense either. If anything, the band has become more technical and heavier than even the heaviest parts of "From Fathoms" (their critically acclaimed 2009 release), not in a "breakdown-and-beat-you-over-the-head" sort of way, but more in the album's overall sound.

With more attention to dynamics than ever before, and a recording that truly demonstrates a band approaching a creative zenith, the new Gifts From Enola album is a lock to defy expectations and raise the creative bar yet again. Easily staying ahead of the pack by pushing themselves to color outside any preset guidelines laid down before them, the band has never intentionally shunned convention - but simply write music with their collective heart on their sleeve.

The album was mixed and mastered by Moving Mountains guitarist/vocalist Gregory Dunn with artwork handled by Three Bears Design (mewithoutYou, Caspian, Reliant K). This marks the bands third full length release, following up "Loyal Eyes Betrayed The Mind" (2006, The Mylene Sheath) and "From Fathoms" (2009, The Mylene Sheath), as well as a split CD with Seattle, WA's You.May.Die.In.The.Desert (2008, Differential). Gifts From Enola is a band through flirting with their potential, as this album proves, this is band that has fearlessly reached the next level.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for all post rock listeners.
