The Blackened Heart has a nice mix of heavy and up tempo songs, all with their own strong and grasping melodies. Enbound prove with "The Blackened Heart" that they can handle any angle of melodic metal. Like on the debut, their characteristic powerful arrangements remain with fantastic and emotional vocals on top.
Guest appearances on the album includes the vocalist Linnéa Wikström [Kamelot, Therion] on "Falling" and Mike LePond [Symphony X] is responsible for the first of two bass solos on "Feed My Flame".
