"Possible my favourite death metal album; Cynic were an incredibly talented ultra-technical band, who unfortunately only released this one album and a few demos. Favourite track probably Veil of Maya."
"I usually can't stand black metal, but this is the exception.Known for having their singer killing himself, and the bassist killing the guitarist, Mayhem actually have talent beneath the controversy."
"I never quite know what to think of Gorguts - genius or insanity? My friend says genius, but tracks like Illuminatus, though undeniably complex and skillful, take an awful long time to really get into"
