Album Review

Reviewed 2008-10-19
Technical death metal that’s pretty much sets out what’s it’s support to do: riff, riff playing heaving some good & heavy songs. Charles Elliott’s vocals are sung in a severely deep growl like Barney of Napalm Death or Opeth’s Mikael Åkerfelt. In the midst of all this battering and pummel are some nice melodic solos and doom breakdowns. In all a generally good release. Comparable to Morbid Angel, Nile or recent Behemoth.

((((1)))) Long intro, then blasting DM with lunging breakdowns.
(((((2))))) Torrent of drum fire, nice riffage & solos. Gets steady later on. Good use of low & high vocals, too.
(((3))) So-so, mid-paced DM
((((4)))) Riffy, fast to melodic yet heavy as bricks DM & WTF is he singing vocals.
((((5)))) Battering with some well done shifts in tempo. Morbid Angel-ish guitar squiggles.
(((6))) Thick chug-chug riffs and some OK parts here & there.
((7)) Acoustic interlude thingy.
((((8))))) Blazing fast, total rippin’ DM though Killer solos. the keyboard “oh-ah” effect is a bit silly.
((((9)))) More fast, epic DM not far from a “brutal” version of At The Gates without being super obvious.
