This is purely a fan opinion review I'm not really going into any great depth about the music or structure of the way the album is set out or anything so if you are interested in that kind of this please read another review! In my view this is simply one of the absolutely greatest metal albums of all time. From start to finish song after song of sheer metal brilliance. I would definitely say this is the best of the "melodic death metal" scene and probably the whole of the "death metal" scene, but it is so much more than that. Out of any genre or sub genre of metal in my books this comes up top end off all metal albums I own or have heard. Even if you are not a "death metal" fan this album is a definite brilliant purchase you will be listening to it from start to finish multiple times a day. Its the kind of album that if you forget about then find it again later you will wonder how you ever forgot about it. Top notch stuff. Must own.
