Like the breeches and chorus of the previous one become a separate composition, Parasite diversifies the sound with changeable, broken rhythms, bright keyboards and ornate vocal duet. The sensual, pensive ballad Taming an Inner Storm touches all emotional experiences, leaving no one indifferent - after all, each such ideas are hanging inside. Then the music puts on its lyrical image in heavy, gloomy and impenetrable armor of heavy rhythm, ending as viscous, tough ballad.
After the previous composition of the other end of the album as a changeable, diverse When Birds Gather Low - combining a stiff, pensive ballad and a hard drive at an average pace. In the main, the instrumental saga is completed by muffled, incomprehensible vocal phrases.
