You surely would expect more from a super-group of this musical capacity than just tremolo-picked guitars, repetitive arpeggios, straightforward blast beats, and boring vocals. Even Travis Ryan doesn't seem to be up to his A game here. The songs are fun to listen to once, but there are certainly lots of duds, too. Plus, it all sounds the same due to its poor production.

After the brilliance of this year's Cattle Decapitation, big things were expected of Travis Ryan when he and his other band Murder Construct announced the release of their full length. And Ryan doesn't disappoint, delivering the same inhuman, twisted vocal performance as he did on MOI. The band's other members, who include members of Exhumed, Fetus Eaters, Bad Acid Trip and more, all play very well, and show they are not a one-dimensional unit by switching seamlessly from grindcore to progressive elements in the albums closer. But most of the album is just balls-to-the-wall grind, which is exactly what we expected, and though the lyrics aren't great they do provide some laughs (Compelled By Mediocrity's deathcore despising lyricism) and the production is very above par for a record like this. It's not AOTY or anything but it is an essential for any extreme music fan.

A great modern deathgrind record that proves that Travis Ryan is one of the best vocalists in the genre. A lot of the record is similar, but that is definitely not a bad thing. The experimental closer "Resultados" ends the album on a high note and puts this this album up with Cattle Decapitation's 'Monolith of Inhumanity' as one of the best deathgrind albums of the past few years.

Murder Construct's debut full-length may not grab the same attention as "Monolith of Inhumanity", "Reign Supreme" or "Utilitarian", but it remains a pretty solid release destined to make some extreme metal year end lists.
