This album is without a shadow of a doubt, the most impressive, unique and spellbinding album of the year. I had been familiar with Altar of Plagues music but had never given it a chance before, this is because I felt I had their sound down and threw them in the pile of standard Post-Black Metal bands. I have never been so wrong, I am ashamed that I didn't at least give them a fair chance but in a way I am glad this is my first album exposure to the band. Otherwise I may not have liked this album as much as I do; this assumption of their sound is why this album has impressed me so much.
The first track I had heard from this album was the track 'God Alone', which straight away knocked me in my place and made me interested to hear the rest. But because of the mix of reviews I held back from buying it until I had heard the entire album. What I have kept noticing is that all the people who are slating this album, are doing it because of them comparing it to their previous material, because of this change in style people are feeling disappointed that there favorite atmospheric black metal band weren't still producing the long spellbinding single track epics which have been present on all of their previous releases. But I feel that this is a great thing, the band in my opinion had already perfected their atmospheric black metal sound with 'White Tomb' and the 'Tides' EP. This split of opinion shows the sign of a great album, as many people have said "If you aren't upsetting someone, you're doing is wrong."
The instrumentation on this album is dense, and done incredibly well. The guitars are tight and biting, which have there usual tremolo riffs but are rarely done to the same extent of their previous compositions.

Massive and erosive to the ears! But what happened to the epic class of "Mammal"?

If you're unfamiliar with the band, they play a kind of post-black metal with thoroughly heavy beats and electronic bass sampling. It's very effective, very loud.

If you've heard the bands previous album, you'll instantly recognise the sound. But on this new album the sound is heavier and deeper, more massive in its scope. The music lends itself naturally to long winding songs building towards epic climaxes. But, surprisingly, the band has opted for much shorter tracks, which leaves me feeling a bit let down. They could have explored these 8 pieces (plus a weird intro that feels completely out of place) so much more. But the songs are good as they are too.

The production on this newest album is polished and tight, definitely a step up from Mammal.

If the band had allowed the songs to evolve and take me on longer journeys, this would have been an easy 5. However, as it is: 4/5

Since this Irish bands humble conception, they have slowly amassed the favour of being a fore founder of the post black metal genre. With furious live performances and a series of totally unique releases, the band headed by James Kelly, brought their legacy to a pivotal moment before closing the gates once and for all earlier this year.

`Teethed Glory and Injury' has stirred up many feelings and divided crowds rather drastically - from scathing knee jerk reactions, to utter bafflement and wonderment. I sit in the second category. Monochromal, static and overwhelming guitar parts fill this heinously creepy production with a naive feeling of exploration and catharsis through the very most basic of violent expression.

Using producer/engineer/musician Jamie Gomez, who has worked with massive names in heavy music including three of Ulver's recent releases, was a fantastic choice for embellishing on the haunted and incursive, glitchy atmosphere. You feel the collaboration at work with James Kelly bringing these artistic ideas to the live room and Jamie Gomez picking up on where some extra programming would work a treat. A lot of that is in and around moments that might have just been feedback and some drums building up on previous albums.

My favourite track is Burnt Year. It is literally painful to listen to. The torment in the voice, and the immense pulse created in the off beat percussion. The song seems to be a very honest recollection of unthinkable tragedy. I can relate to some of the subject matter, which is probably why the song has a very strong effect on me.

I always loved Altar of Plagues most during their more minimal moments with either yelped or even sung passages over a thorny bed of distant drums and toothless cacophony, before often the bite returns in a scintillating, uniform but totally individual firestorm of modern, urban and introverted sonic malcontent.

WOW. Incredible.

I like this disc much better than 'Mammal'. As good as 'White Tomb'.
What Altar Of Plagues does on this CD is break their own barriers and it is very rewarding to the listener. Its different. This is a VERY Black CD. Much more Black Metal than 'Mammal'. But its also very unique, twisted and downright excellent!

The best part of this Disc, is it gives the listener options. AOP has pretty much reached their peak with 15 minute plus tracks. As much as I liked the anticipation of those slow, creepy dirges, I always wondered if they could hit the mark and cut those pieces down. After all, not many are always in the mood to listen to a 15 minute track. This CD gives the listener the option of totally skipping the ambient, mid-section and you can get the experience in the surrounding tracks of 4-5 minute gems. These tracks are EXTREMELY intense. Brutal. The best material they have done so far.

BUT this is not to say its an easy listen or that any of it can be background music. These tracks are true, creepy, blast-beat infused Black metal (no stupid satanic lyrics) with some extremely intense effects. The things you like about their previous stuff is all here but condensed, and where the band may not have many new ideas musically, sonically this CD is a trip. The layers and sound effects, the venom spouting Vocals (at times are nearly as creepy as the cult classic by Silencer-'Death Pierce Me'), the chants, percussion, The different Guitar sounds they use and the production of the drumming to suite the tracks, is very good. The Ideas these guys have are astounding, yet all bleak. They really tried to inflict more technological trauma with this CD and have succeeded without losing an ounce of intensity. Quite the opposite really.
