It was a more typical death metal album for the time, although extremelytechnical. After "Here in After", which was a far more technical and unconventional album (released in 1996),Craig Smilowski left the band to be replaced by Alex Hernandez, who played on the next three albums:"Failures for Gods" released in 1999, "Close to a World Below" (generally considered to be the band's finestwork) in 2000 and "Unholy Cult" in 2002. Steve Shalaty (ex-Odium, ex-Gutted) stepped behind the kit for"Harnessing Ruin" in 2005 and "Shadows in the Light" in 2007. Lately they have been touring endlessly inEurope and North America. They are currently signed to Century Media.
