Hell yeah. Crysis have you taken the time to check out Anacrusis, Thought Industry or Voivod? If you can appreciate this then you would love those too (I checked your ratings and didn't see those bands).

Anacrusis - Manic Impressions or Screams&Whispers (both albums are free on their website)

Thought Industry - Mods Carve the Pig or Songs For Insects

Voivod - Dimension: Hatross

Digging: Emperor - In The Nightside Eclipse - 20th Year Anniversary

No, I haven't listened to those bands. I've heard of Voivod and Thought Industry, but I'll give all three a listen later tonight. Thanks for the rec's.

No problem, Here is a link for the Anacrusis albums and if you have trouble with the Thought Industry ones let me know (the Voivod one is pretty easy to find).

Downloading Manic Impressions now. I'm sure I'll be able to find the Thought Industry and Voivod albums no problem.

I love the musical aspect of this album. The vocals are annoying, but I have been able to get past them as of late.

Maybe it's all the Rush I've soaked up, but the vocals on this don't faze me a bit. Dude just has a high voice...he sounds a lot like Bruce Dickinson with a screechier, Geddy Lee-ish top end.
As for the music, I was pretty surprised to hear how much this sounds like late-era Death.

It's only a minor wording issue, but it really should be "how much late-era Death sounds like this" ;)

Hahaha true. I always think of these things in the order I'VE listened/seen, but yeah. Schuldiner even cited them as an influence, but it didn't hit me till I listened.

If you like this I have to (again) point out that you need a few other albums too:

Anacrusis - Manic Impressions (free: http://anacrusis.us/media%20files/MP3/Albums/Albums.html )

Voivod - Dimension: Hatross

Thought Industry - Songs for Insects (and Mods Carve the Pig if you're feeling really adventerous).

I dunno why, but I actually like the vocals. And Im not one to usually like high metal vocals. I dunno, but it works for me.

Digging: Fallujah - The Flesh Prevails

I'm used to the vocals now, but I do wish they had done something different with them.

once again the cliche of an album's "flaw" being bitched and bitched about simply because someone once bitched about it. from what i've heard on this, the vocals aren't that bad. if you want really bad high pitched thrash vocals, listen to the first forbidden album, or better yet even just the first 2 songs from it. some of metal's worst vocals there.

This is pretty awesome. Kinda got used to the vocals rather quickly. I actually think the high-pitched vocals work fine with the energetic and unpredictable music. Especially digging Mayday in Kiev, Fall of Reason, title track and Life Cycles. Thinking 4-4.5.
