Eyes Set To Kill release their second album, The World Outside, with a lot of follow up on. Coming after the first full length Reach which established a fanbase and a sound for them to fit into, this album does very well in holding their sound and moving it further in a perhaps progressive direction.

The World Outside starts off with "Heights", squealing growls to begin, advancing to more mellifluous vocals to overlap, the contrast is interesting to say the least. Following that track, "Hourglass" flows very smoothly, not only coming from the previous track and moving to the next, but the song itself has a very pleasing coexistence of heavier riffs, sweeping trills, heavier growls and soft songful vocals. As we get further into the body of the album it takes on more of a pop attempt than their previous works can be attributed to. For example, "Deadly Weapons", has an almost mature Paramore feel to it.

The beautiful break and interlude track aptly named, is placed in the perfect position of the album. As if you have seen glimpses of what the band can do before this interlude, and afterward focus more on combining it all together. To start off with the second half, "The World Outside" and "March of the Dead" drop the tempo and pick up a more melodic and harmonic progression, but each capable of moving smoothly back into the heavier rock and guitar breakdowns.

The drumwork, while not necessarily overtly prominent, does a significant job in holding down the structure of the album. Which is easily visible in the latter end of the album, where the drumming seems to steer the tracks into the directions they need to go. In the end, The World Outside, is again another quality release by Eyes Set To Kill. It does feature a bit more of a pop influence which, while generally can be looked upon as a downside, seems to do them a favor, and lets them open up a bit more. If a fan of their previous work, this release will definitely be worth your time.
