Album Review

Reviewed 2007-09-03
Death metal from the Seattle that's big on the low end and murky and muck in the vocal department. The mixing of the ultra-low vocals and the blasting beats and fast riffs is a well known path (see Blasphemy, Incantation, etc.) but this does manage to rise above the mire every so often.

((((1))) Fast and filled with odd metered riffs.
((((2)))) Guitars played at the tempo that seem to spin on forever & ever. More strangely structured DM attack.
((((3))) Really good doom riff dissovling into more blasting with a medicore "popcorn effect" on the drums.
((((4)))) Solid and charging riff and "bllurrgy" vocals overpowering the crux of some of the riffing but otherwise fine.
(((5))) Totally confusion but at times interesting with the bass breakdown and slow parts.
((6)) Fast & sloppy DM
(((7))) Mid-paced riffing with 80's style soloing. Later gets predictably fast but the breakdowns are what saves it from being crap.
((((8)))) Doom and groove styled riffs eventually exploding into more odd patterned DM. Some really neat, kinda techy runs around the fretboard.
((((9))))) Squeally guitar based DM. Yet again going into the generic "Blasty McBlast". Although they seem to excel when they play slow.
