This release wasn't viewed in the same light as their previous offering 'Effigy Of The Forgotten', but the one major thing about this album is that it contains 9 new songs! Effigy had two re-workings (Infecting The Crypts, and Jesus Wept), and Pierced also had two re-workings (Breeding The Spawn, and Synthetically Revived), so this is technically a better album for that, but the same problem that plagued Suffocation throughout their caree struck again - a not so decent drummer compared the rest of the guys. This was finally sorted out in time for their last release, 'Despise The Sun', but sadly, they broke up not long after. This record contains many of the same elements that captured so many people from the first two releases, and that's the sheer technicality, but catchiness of it. The riffs are hard to remember, but once it get's to you, you can't escape. The lyrics have always been interesting too, and not concentrating on immature gore either (although it can be fun!).
Essential listening for anyone who loves very technical death metal (like me). Very underrated because of Effigy.
