Yeah it's super fast and technical and they added prog elements but... Who gives a shit? Don't get me wrong there are some cool things at work here but honestly this music manages to be both overwhelming and boring at the same time for the most part. I wouldn't bother listening to this more than once.

It was pretty good, wish it was longer and had less filler songs though, Autotheist Movement
(The three parts as a whole, i mean) are easily one their best songs, along with In
Solitude. I actually didn't enjoy The Eidolon Reality that much, it reminds me of Dream
Theater for some reason. The rest of it up until In Solitude is either forgettable or
mindless filler tracks, they're not boring at all though, just not so exciting to listen to
as the other songs in the album.
I can understand how many of you are raging over the Sax solo and the clean singing, well,
Akeldama had clean singing, so i don't know where all that rage is coming from, as for the
Sax solo… Why not?
Being a huge fan of much of today's Prog and Tech Death Metal, some riffs and parts may come
out as some sort of cliché and end up being somewhat predictable, but people really have no
idea how hard it is to write good music, and this isn't a classic, but it's pretty good by
itself and that's about it.

Great, The Faceless and The Contortionist release albums trying too hard to be progressive and just end up stupid

The Faceless prove that they can be both flexible and unfocused. Most of the album features the band imitating proggy elements from the likes of BTBAM and (Opeth?). A few fresh ideas shine through but are lost to all the mediocrity (clean vocals and the death metal parts just arent up to par on this;evan brewer is underutilized for his talents)

The Faceless release another album after their Planetary Duality album. The album is their longest album to date. This time they change thery'e style up a bit. This album takes a more progressive root than it's precursor. Starting off with a three part intro to the album. The first three tracks entitled "Autotheist Movement" part I,II,III takes elements such as softer vocals and a post rock atmosphere. This reminded me alot of progressive act such as Dream Theater.They keep they technical death metal side,but this isn't in your face as Planetary Duality.Micheal Keene takes advantage of this softer side of vocals. This is quite the change since in their previous work their has such little to none of this. The first thing you will notice they have changed instead the crazy use of drums bass and guitar to a more melodic and slower paced album. Evan brewer the new bassist is used quite well in this album, but he never shines as much as he should. The use of keys and synth are at their best in this album. It's sounds at times like you are in a orchestra pit. This album overall stayed consistent and overall a better outlet for the band. Instead of trying to be the fastest band in the world, they try to create a album which not only crosses the barrier into progressive death metal territory but is mellow and chill. The vocoder elements have been left to a minimum only to one song called "Hail Science".I enjoyed this album every much and i hope if you thought this band is bland and boring. Auto-theism is their way of saying "We evolve and create not repeat and rehash"

Michael Keene has multiple vocal-personality disorder. I think the biggest problem with his
cleans on this particular album is that somewhere between his approach and delivery, he
sounds like he's trying to be everyone but himself. Sometimes he sounds too much to the
likes of Jerry Cantrell, Devin Townsend, etc. While you could argue that he does this to
avoid stagnation, I feel he lacks an "identity" that could really make his clean vocals
shine through in a positive way.

It's...ok. Some of the solos you could probably have sex to but you might wanna hurry up before the clean vocals or heavy parts kick back in

Straying even further into the realm of progressive metal, The Faceless have created an album that may displease fans expecting Planetary Duality: Part II, but is a definite grower.

Doesn't grab your attention for more than a min or 2 of each song. A lot more repetitive than I
expected, seemingly unnecessary sections of songs. Really enjoy the ending solo sections on II &
III. Other than that, "Accelerated Evolution" is ok, and "Ten Billion Years" is sort of
The rest blows hard
|3.5 great||Sapee | February 16th 16|
It's a great album as a whole, but if you start to break it down, you'll notice that there isn't any standout tracks. They just don't work well invidually, atleast when compared to the past releases.
|3.5 great||cash money tyler | September 7th 15|
if this was just an ep with only the first three songs, i'd rate it way higher. first three tracks are dope, the rest is just alright songs that are more reminiscent of their older sound, which i find to be disappointing considering how different the first three tracks are to their normal style, and how much they shive because of it.

Wanted to love, and it did get multiple multiple replays, just tedious and long arrays of melody that were not there on Planetary Duality
|2.5 average||quorf | June 17th 15|
Bandleader Michael Keene's new musical direction not being taken into consideration, THE SONGS JUST AREN'T THERE. So many lineup changes, and so much time between releases, and the follow-up to "Planetary Duality" just can't compete with its predecessor. "The Eidolon Reality" is the only track I was particularly excited by, and even then it's weighed down by the album's overall lackluster production.
|4.0 excellent||Jared Floryan | November 16th 14|
Autotheism certainly takes a while to sink in, ultimately for those who have nourished on the properties of Akeldama and Planetary Duality. Personally, my only issue with this band's third studio album is in the form of "Hymn of Sanity" and "Hail Science", particular the latter; the Stephen Hawkins bit is so bombastic it's not hilarious. Though if you're a person quite similar to myself and can shrug The Faceless' latest record's problems as small nitpicks, then Autotheism is a primarily brilliant progressive death metal piece with smatterings of the band's usual technical demonstration.
|4.0 excellent||BRAman22 | May 5th 14|
Not as good as The Faceless' first album, but still a very good showing.

Autotheist Movements p.1-3 are damn good but the rest of the album is unremarkable. Not bad, just not great.

The Faceless have returned with their third album: possibly the biggest shit stain on any musical integrity they had to begin with. The album is full of progressive metal rip-offs and stale song-writing. Their poor attempt at ripping off Opeth, Cynic and Devin Townsend leave me absolutely awestruck at how gullible they take their general audience to be. And the sad thing is that all their fans swallowed this up.

Lyrically, I'm not a fan of all the anti-religious lyrics, but musically, this is The Faceless at its best or at least right up there with Planetary Duality.
|2.5 average||Deuce8311 | September 20th 12|
Absolutely nothing special to me on this one. There was just too much flying around to make it a cohesive record. Clean vocals and prog elements were added to make it a different kind of record from what we're used to, but honestly it just ended up being a chaotic mess that I criticized more than I enjoyed.
|3.5 great||TheNotrap | September 12th 12|
Despite some inconsistencies in the song structures and the uncharismatic clean vocals, "Autotheism" remains an enjoyable listening experience. Band deserves credit for blending diverse musical textures.
|4.0 excellent||ManintheBox | August 27th 12|
I wouldn't call this a disappointment, just a failure to realize a sounds full potnetial. This is no Planetary Duality basicly. Accelerated evolution, in solitude and the autotheistic movements are all really well done though.
|3.5 great||G.M.B. | August 25th 12|
Ultimately, Autotheism is a record that just tries way too hard to be progressive. The Faceless should stick to their tech death style.

The album grows on you after a couple of listens. And is it just me or does the guitar's aggressiveness with each album get more and more moderate?
|3.5 great||AnEpicDeath | August 16th 12|
Some tracks on here (Autotheist Movement II, Eidolon Reality, Ten Billion Years) make me want to give this a
4, but realistically it's a 3.5. "In Solitude" is the only track that I feel pulls off the proggier sound they were
going for in most of this album without sounding too segmented or derivative.
|3.0 good||Dylan Longstreet | August 14th 12|
The very first time I heard the Autotheist suite I went "Wait, this is Devin Townsend riffage... okay now an attempt at Devin Townsend vocals... oh shit now it's a latter Opeth mellotron interlude? Ooh that is some tasty guitar tone... Is that a Mikael Akerfeldt guest solo?rTo be honest, "Devin Townsend mixed with Opeth" would at first sound like a potential incredible thing... but not when it is so blatantly derivative and separated/exposed (here is the Devin section, and now the Opeth section etc). This album is pretty underwhelming.

Overall this record is pretty forgettable. Keene's clean singing is amateurish, and he tries too hard to sound like Devin Townsend and Mikael Akerfeldt. Average at best.
