This album isn't as good as Hatebreeder, Follow the Reaper, or Hate Crew Deathroll, but it is slightly better than Are You Dead Yet?. It's pretty thrashy, not as melodic as it was said to be, and a couple guitar solos don't sound very good, but as a whole it's a decent album. The new version of Tie My Rope isn't a drastic improvement from the original, but over time it will be considered better. It's definitely worth a listen but it's a very short album and it plays itself out kinda quick.

i have heard it, and that's all you need to know. The guitar solos i was referring to were on the songs Lobodomy and Smile Pretty for the Devil. They just don't sound right, and both appear at 2:27 into the song. In due time, you'll understand what i'm talking about. The album actually sounds like it was made between Hate Crew Deathroll and Are You Dead Yet, less melodic, more thrashy, but a decent album altogether.

The only songs I've heard so far are Blooddrunk and Banned From Heaven, I quite like both songs and I imagine I'll end up liking the rest of the album once I get it. Blooddrunk is a pretty thrashy tune and less melodic than their earlier stuff, but still decent. But Banned from Heaven on the other hand I think is a really awesome song, and has that same melodic vibe like on Hatecrew or AYDY, I'm still looking forword to this next disc.

You guys need to listen to it a bit more if you're giving up on after 2 listens. I wasn't that stoked on it when i first heard it, but now i fu cking love songs like Roadkill Morning, One Day you will Cry, Blooddrunk and Banned from heaven. Really complex songs, they take some listening to appriciate. THats why this isn't mainstream bs.

I ent giving up on it, this was just my reply after 2 listens. I dont give a fuk weather its mainstream or not, its just lost is bodomness Imo they have got a lot heavier and the lyrics r a lot darker, i like the jingle (a gay word but best way 2 describe it) of the keyboard and the solos arent up 2 scratch compared to Bodom beach terror or children of decadence and shiz. I am gonna listen 2 it a hell of a lot more, as they r my all time fav band, but i dont know its missing that certain summin

It's not a bad album, it's just different. The songs are more thrashy than melodic. There's not really a "bad" song on the album, just nothing to convince us that it's great. The whole thing's so short, after a few listens i get sick of hearing it.
