5.0 out of 5 stars

on 1 February 2005
from the moment the first track begins this record promises to keep you entertained. every song has its own personality, though this is a metal/grind/hardcore hybrid in its truest form. though there isn't much variation in terms of jumping from genre to genre, there is quite a bit of range jumping from sub-genre to sub-genre. there is no formula to any of the tracks on this record, and to be honest it's a breath of fresh air. each track goes through several different phases ranging from pummeling blast beats to insanely heavy beatdowns all the way to the occasional clean guitar melodic interlude. dont get me wrong, there isn't any "Singing" or anything on this record, its just pure intensity for the most part. i also enjoy the fact that there is an amazing amount of technicality but nothing is too forced, the drumming is almost perfect. he can use polyrhythms quite well, but can quickly go back to tight syncopation with crunching guitars. the highlight of the album to me is the vocals, everything from high pitched screams to some of the most solid deep growls i have heard in a while. and Guy's lyrics also offer something a little different than everything else out there, discussing everything from video games and our superficial culture to "guys playing the sensitivity card to get some" discussed in "L Formation." there are also the typical bloody and death lyrics, but they aren't over the top, in fact they are placed almost perfectly and remain quite coherent throughout the record. this record is a great alternative to much of the boring, overrated music found in the grindcore, hardcore, and death metal genres. get this record if you are interested in listening to something that offers a more intelligent approach to heavy music.

The red chord are one of my favourite bands right now. This is just straight up brutal mayhem. This album is so heavy in hurts my head. The vocals are amazing, some awesome screams and growls. The music is very technical, with some insane drumming. As well as this there are some brutal breakdowns to keep you interested. This cd has it all. Breakdowns, mayhem and original lyrics.
