Earth Crisis have matured and it sounds amazing, many older fans may accuse them of selling out purely becasue Karl Buechner appears to have dicovered, dare I say it 'melody' in his vocals! However, Earth Crisis still maintain theri political agenda and amazingly heavy, grinding music.The opening track 'Loss of Humanity' sounds like the sort of thing that you would find on a Soulfly album with it's tribal drumming intro. This album is so different to anything else earth crisis have done (no not sell outs, its called progression!) and most other stuff out there. This could be the album to break them out of the hardcore scene. Fans of VOD, Slipknot, RATM, SOAD and hardcore will find this a perfect album.
