Killer!, 24 Mar. 2009
The album starts with the self titled track. This basically shows you what your in for and what the new line-up is capable of producing. Amazingly, this is probably there best release ever. Its a complete change from the old albums. Not to say the old albums were bad at all!! You will find alot of melodic sections aswell as some heavy riffing. The solos take you into a different dimension of the song. Often Ralph Santolla and Jack Owen will take the song to a new level by adding some neo-classical influences into there solos. Ralph takes care of the sweeping/fast runs, while jack takes care of the tapping, trilling and tremelo picking. The drums are perfect. Asheim arranging the songs himself, is a veteran in getting the drms just right, especially over the solos. The vocal mixing is the best yet. Its hard to imagine how Glen pulls off the very fast vocals. Highlights of this album include; The Stench of Redemption, Homage for Satan, Crucified for the Innocance, and godlike The Lord's Sedition. All in all its mind blowing. I recommend buying this.
