Firstly, if you are reading this review and have little knowledge of the Trail of Dead, but are keen to purchase something because you've heard some good things, I warn you, do not purchase this cd. Immediately go to "Source Tags and Codes", purchase that, listen on repeat for a week and then no doubt you will want to purchase every other cd released by ToD. This new EP being a good place to start.
Whilst it doesn't have the brilliant melding of songs and intricate song structures as on "Source Tags" there is plenty here to get yourself pumped for the next release. Being only a 5 song EP it was always going to be hard to produce a fully cohesive "album" whilst appealing to old fans and still developing into something new, however I think the ToD have done as good a job as could be expected (although the album art is a little disappointing, especially after the brilliant cover to Source Tags that seems to grow and develop into something else, much like many of the songs).
Track 1: Mach Schau: definitely a true ToD song, heavy and hard hitting, with the usual tempo shifts, slow guitar lines that evolve into a hard hitting chorus before easing up for just long enough for you to catch your breath before flinging you straight back into the fire. A great opener, and a very fine song.
Track 2: All St. Day: another fine rocker which is in much the same vein as some of the softer more mellow "rock" songs off Source Tags. More of a "How Near, How Far" or "Relative Ways" style single material song.
Track 3: Crowning of a Heart: This songs just flows straight through beautifully from the end of "All St Day".

How do you follow up an album as great as Source Tags and Code? You evolve. And with the EP 'Secrets of Elena's Tomb' that's exactly what the Trail of Dead are doing.

Mach Schau is classic ToD. Raw, hard, and intelligent. This song could have been taken off the 'Madonna' album. Not to say it's bad, but this is the worst song on the EP.

All Saints Day is a fantastic new song. It sounds like it could have been taken out of 'Source Tags'. It uses the normal soft/hard formula of ToD, but shows a little more advancement. Very mellow as well. One of my favorite Trail of Dead songs.

Crowning of a Heart is even mellower than All Saints Day. Think "How Near How Far". A great song.

Counting Off the Days is a short acoustic song. Yes that's right I said acoustic. It's a fantastic song, just an acoustic guitar and a string backing that adds much warmth and feeling. The vocals fit perfectly as well.

Intelligence. This is the bands biggest departure. Other reviewers have mentioned techno, electronica, and dance music in relation to this song. That's all wrong. The closest comparision would be to say it's like ToD doing an incredible cover of a early Nine Inch Nails song. Die hard fans, don't be scared away, this is no namby-pamby electronica.

All in all, if this is a sign of where the Trail of Dead will be going with their next album, I'm even more excited about it then I was before. Not only that, but this dispels any fear I might have had that they won't be able to top Source Tags. For any fan who wants to see what the next album may be like, or just wants something to tide them over, this is worth your money. For any new fan, get 'Source Tags and Code' and go from there.

This 5 track EP isn't really essential, but if you're curious and have 5 or 6 bucks to throw around it may be worth your while. The first track sounds like textbook trail of dead, but isn't all that great a song to tell you the truth. The second song is, again, a textbook trail of dead song, but it seems to hold up better than the first track. The third track, "Crowning of a Heart", is a calm reflective piece which sounds like some of the latter tracks on ST+C. "Counting off the Days" sounds like Trail Of Dead covering a Sunny Day Real Estate (Rising Tide-era) song. The final track "Intelligence" is kind of a techno-ish departure from familiar Trail of Dead territory, perhaps indicating a new direction being taken on the next album? One of the great pluses to buying this EP is some great enhanced features on the disc which can be accessed by sticking the disc into a computer. Featuring some awesome artwork slides, a couple videos (live and otherwise), and some other little trinkets. Again, it's worth getting if you spot it and are curious, but chances are you don't really need this unless you're a collector.

I love this E.P. While everyone has to be stupid and critical becuase of the diversity of the tracks, I feel this E.P. delivers. "Mach Schau" is the best opener, and has a great raw intro and a hard hitting chorus. It's nice and gritty and one awesome song. All St. Day is good too, yes, the intro is too much like Sonic Youth's awesome "Dirty Boots" but the actual song part is great and new for TOD. "Mach Schau" along with the excellent "Crowning of A Heart" are the highlights for me though. "Crowning of a Heart has the best vocal harmonies these guys could pull off and cool electric guitar strumming. The acoustic song is okay, but not really my deal. THe elctroclash type song "Intelligence" is cool in it's departure from the rest of the songs and is a cool thing to have on disk. However, to me the meat of the E.P. is the first 3 songs. Buy it and listen, I mean for my 6.98 or whatever I felt I got my money's worth. If you will excuse me I must go listen...
