I was really digging the guitar work on the first track "Enter The Hall," but when the vocals hit on the second track I started to lose interest, big jump in style. Some good stuff there, but I guess this style just isn't 100% my thing. Too bad they didn't keep the menacing guitar tone from the first track through the rest of it.

I think I'm getting more and more jaded about technical death metal bands today, I think I would have liked this in the past. Necrophagist (whom I do love) seems to have spawned a legion of faultless, robotic and pretty damn creative bands. This band is good, but they have a bit of a way to go before they challenge Martyr (whom they sound a lot like).

Still, these bands are metal as hell so I can't complain! Hope they have good luck for the future (which they undoubtedly will with such big record label backing).

Phenomenal death/thrash with great riffs and almost funky solos......?


Ans : Exactly what I always wanted.

Check out their first album, it is very good. It may even be better than this album. I haven't had a chance to listen to this new one all the way through as of yet, but the two tracks they released early didn't seem to quite measure up to their previous effort. Seems like more thought went into making the songs sound interesting.

If the vocals are a put-off, I doubt you'll find what you're looking for in the other album, but it is a classic in my mind. Aside from a pig-squeal or two. :P
