"Le Temps De Detruit Tout" is the follow up to the 2008 album "Amor Mortem Mei Erit" from progressive band The Reticent, led by Chris Hatchcock. They´re influenced by bands like Opeth, Tool and Katatonia but doesn´t sound as much as their influences. The music is pretty dark at times and it´s a lengthy album with a running time of 1 hour where "Enemy" stand out as a really great piece, too bad The Reticent doesn´t reach the same heights on the rest of the album except for the nice cover of R.E.M´s "Losing my religion". The band sounds tight and they´ve got a few cool ideas but the low budget production drag my overall impression down. However, The Reticent is a band with potential.
