    Absolutely amazing album, it's actually the only album by them I've enjoyed but did they ever step their game up. If you like Progressive metal or Sludge you're guaranteed to love it.

  1. At the end of the day, the best single word for describing Static Tensions is "unpredictable," and although this characteristic may demand a few more listens before the album's many amazing qualities can sink in properly, the ultimate payoff is very much worth the effort.
  2. Although a more varied use of the two drummers would be appreciated, the overall echoed effect with the cleaner production offers a complete, homogenized sound, which, when consumed en masse, makes for a killer album. [Jun 2009, p.105]
  3. Static Tensions, which, while not as compositionally right-angled as 2006 Prosthetic disc "Time Will Fuse Its Worth," liquefies massively ('Perception') and even psychedelically ('Unknown Awareness') into a multiton Teutonic corkscrew.
