4.0 out of 5 stars Never thought I'd say it but...
...this album might just be too brutal. I know, I know... Every song is dizzyingly fast and complex, but after listening to all 30 minutes of it you'll find yourself thinking "Yeah, that was really fast and brutal but...." and that's where the problem lies. There's nothing to really grab hold of. No truly memorable riffs or parts of the songs, and definitely no sing...

1.0 out of 5 stars fake....
..this sounds like somebody walking into your living room with a machine gun and letting rip. triggered, over the top drums, over produced - why cant drummers just have that natural old school drum sound? this sounds so fake, i'm sorry but good drummers can play as fast without the use of these triggers which is beginning to swamp every band lately. this ruins this album...

...this album might just be too brutal. I know, I know... Every song is dizzyingly fast and complex, but after listening to all 30 minutes of it you'll find yourself thinking "Yeah, that was really fast and brutal but...." and that's where the problem lies. There's nothing to really grab hold of. No truly memorable riffs or parts of the songs, and definitely no sing along choruses (But you probably knew that if you're reading this review). It's just constant shredding and blast beats.

It sounds great, like a big grindcore machine chugging out endless brootality, but that's really all it is. This is one of those albums you stick on when you want nothing but to be sonically raped. Good stuff!

5.0 out of 5 stars extreme., 14 May 2007

this band are very technical. when i say very i mean absolutly out of this world technical. this album is monstrously fast and brutal. complex riffs sit nicely alongside blast beats and breakdowns. stop start rythms and tempo shifts feature heavily.

i have read a lot of reviews on other websites that do not give this band full credit. this album is well worth a listen. the production is not as good as it could be. sometimes the symbols are pushed way back in the mix and the bass is hard to pick out but this album is still killer. and anyone who says the breakdowns ruin this album, they are sadly mistaken. for fans of necrophagist, decapitated and nile. check this band out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Technical metal at its best!, 4 May 2007

You will wonder how it is possible for humans to produce this kind of album. It's very, very fast all the way through and combines machine gun-like blast beating with overwhelming guitar riffs. It's very tight and the crisp production accentuates how good these musicians are. And of course there are various different time signatures to enjoy throughout. To sum up, this is an extreme album you must have!
