Mediocre at best.
on 11 June 2012
I was really looking forward to the release of this album, after Evisceration Plague, which was Ok not great but a few good ones.
Imaginative, Innovative, Technical Brilliance and A 'Classic' are all words which CANT describe this album. Technical, yes, Brilliant, NO. I Am a huge Corpse fan and have all of there other releases, Best of which in my opinion are Bloodthirst, KILL and Wretched Spawn.
But since Cannibal have used the same producer for the last couple albums they seem to have become boring and worst of all predictable. Most of the tracks sound very similar. I did not at any point find myself growling along whether I knew the words or not, not like when The Bleeding or Bloodthirst were released.
Don't get me wrong, the technical elements are very good, but there are a million and one different Tech Death bands around especially with a new Decapitated release on the sleeves. There isn't even any change in pace really. I know that same fans will be like "faster the better, thats BRUTAL". But one of my favorite songs is 'When Death Replaces Life', an awesome grinder of a song. But they just dont seem to do that anymore.
Buy the album if you want to own everything, but to be honest save your money and just download Track 11, its only good one on there. I wish I had.
