There is nothing terribly original on this album by Bleeding Through standards - Fast paced riffing? Check. Breakdowns? Check. Blastbeats? Check? Laser beams? Check. Murmaider... Wait, that's not right, is it?
Ahem. The album starts off with a slow-burning instrumental which launches into one of the most brutal opening songs the band have penned. Everything sounds great - beefy tone, technical instrumentation, and perhaps most noticeably, a very improved Schiepatti, whose vocals are starting to reach into the realm of black metal shrieks on occasion. His clean singing is also notably stronger on this album.
If the band has threatened to release an album that would not just crush your face, but then proceed to kerb-stomp it into a bloody pulp, this is the one. And, in this metal head's humble opinion, it's their best yet.
