a really strong album from last year in the field of death metal. This is harsh and brutal and fast and dirty and melodic , it is everything io want from a death metal album, gore pores from it, nastiness is there but its catchy , its interesting, it isn't just one idea played to death, it is engaging and I saw the band play a few tracks of this live last year and it was a treat, the whole thing works really.

Following my first listen to this, first impressions are that it's pretty unrelenting in its assault, you may want a gentler introduction to death metal if you're new to it (wait, is there such a thing?). Definitely not one to put on as quiet background music, the thundering bass and drum lines demand volume - and they're the really strong points of most of the tracks; the vocals are typical death metal you-can't-sing-along-to-this growls, and some of the lead guitar solos seem a little bolted on afterwards, not quite fitting onto the rhythm section.
