I've been getting a little jaded with metal lately, after 26 years of listening to it you feel like you've heard almost everything and you can listen to bands, never having them before, you know exactly what they are going to play, exactly how they'll play it, it's not a great feeling.
When I borrowed this from a friend I was not in the best of spirits but this has really given me the shot in the arm I needed. The sound is very unique which is quite and achievement in this day and age. Think In Flames/Arch Enemy mixed with some Fear Factory and a little sprinkling of melodic death metal and some some metalcore. The vocalist's diction is so good, despite almost slipping in DM grunts he has a genuine and unique clarity. The two things that really string you though are the guitar sound and the drumming. The guitars again have unique sound all their own and the drumming, the guy sounds like a machine, don't think I've drumming that good and that fast in years, yet it still fits in well with the music.
If you like metalcore and the more melodic DM/thrash sounds of bands like Arch Enemy and Climatic Terra, then get this, it's absolutely blinding!
