What we get here is a incredibly heavy album that stands out from the pack thanks to dynamic vocals and true growth from the band.
The sound is still aggressive and very heavy. The band sprinkles in some nice little surprises here and there that shake up their instrumental game. "Creative Captivity" has some trumpet sections that just sound fantastic and are one example of the enjoyable ways the band catches you off guard.
The album's almost non-stop brutality can lead to a light sense of monotony if you try to listen to it all at once. Too heavy? There's no such thing. Yet, even at eleven tracks it's nice to get a quick break after a certain point to cleanse your listening palate to fully appreciate the album.
With a uncompromising sense of heaviness, exciting changes in pace, and just an all around excellent sound, this is one you don't want to miss. It's an album that doesn't just deserve to be in any metal fans collection, it kind of needs to be. It's one of the most exciting examples of just how quality this genre can be. Metal has rarely shined brighter.
I give this album a 9.7/10.… Expand
