5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Mr. Zebulon tm Minett on 15 Dec 2009
Format: Audio CD
This is one of the heaviest yet melodic albums I have ever heard. After getting back from uni one day, my housemate was playing this album and I was instantly hooked. There is some serious musicianship on this album and it has to be heard to be believed. There are constant tempo changes, polyrhythmic drumming and endless riffs, which sometimes weave in and out of each other. After hearing the downtuned riffery of 'A Vicious Reforming Of Features', the band could be likened to Swedish tech metal band Meshuggah, and there are a few similarities that can be made. Number One: downtuned, 8-string Ibanez guitars. Number Two: endless time signature changes and polyrhythms. And Number Three: just sheer brutality. All the songs on this album are excellent (there are only 8 tracks and the album clocks in at just over 30 minutes). If you like the brutality of Meshuggah mixed with the melody of bands such as All That Remains (within the guitars, not the singing, as there is none, only screaming) then I would highly recommend this album.

very similar to "the contortionist" but with a little bit more meat on the bone. im always looking out for bands that push the boundaries of quality. these guys seem to tick the boxes.

Excellent Tech-Metal for a new generation 12 Nov 2008
By MTTS - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
When I first heard this bands original album, I wasn't blown away. It was cool and had some really interesting rhythms and melody, but it wasn't mind blowing. As soon as I heard Cursing Akenaten, track 3 of the album, I knew it was a must to get this. Never have once have I skipped a song on the CD. Every time I start the cd while driving, I intend to go to a track favorite, but always end up listening to the whole CD. It's that good.

The CD stands on it's own without needing a leading tack to keep your interest. The Meshuggah influence is evident, but in a good way. The melody off set it so well that it really makes you wonder what else can be done with this sort of poly-rhythmic assault.

Bottom line, do yourself a favor and at least preview the tracks, it's an album that will remain true to it's form no matter how you try and dissect it, metal simply does not get better than this.

Tech/math at it's best! 24 Oct 2009
By Extol - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The technical creativity of this band makes any math major happy!
I love this cd and for those reading this review, the previous comment about this being the re-issue is wrong, this is the 2008 regular first release of this cd.
The re-issue enhanced cd 2009 is here
http://www.amazon.com/Rareform-Reissue-After-Burial/dp/B002ISID0G

The 2009 re-issue's cover is all dark, the 2008 origional release is 2 tone light on top dark on bottom half of cd.

Best album I've heard in months, diverse taste 10 Aug 2010
By Spaced Cadet - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is death metal at times, guitar wizardy at other times. Forget the subject matter, you can only interpret a little of it by ear. The solos kick me in the teeth, though some sound a little familiar thematically (can't place where from). I don't especially like death metal. For fans of complex guitar work, and a little noise in the interim. I been curb'd by rareform.
By the way, this Sumerian Records needs to support their bands better. I did a search and so many of their bands got one album published, never to be heard from again. Still waiting on Conducting from the Grave.

:P 16 May 2010
By I. Duiven - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Well, I didn't get the originally recorded Rareform album that was advertised, but I got the re-recorded one and I'm cool with that. It's a really great album by a very incredible, talented band. If you're into at least a little bit of metalcore or progressive hard rock/metal check it out.

One of the best metal albums ever! 19 April 2010
By Jeremiah Howard - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
All I can say is if your a fan of any kind of metal especially metalcore than get this CD it's one of the best I've heard and I listen to alot of underground or metal/deathcore bands. After I seen them live I had to have this CD and I was not disappointed at all.
