I just want to make it perfectly clear: Meshuggah released Nothing ten years ago.

With the exception of a few select tracks, this album is proof that The Acacia Strain have simply lost any creativity that can be found on earlier releases.

Possibly some of the most predictable music I've heard in a while, coupled with bad lyrics.

"Oh man, they're trying to sound like Meshuggah naow. They're evolving so much as a band!"

sorry guys, this one is just not doing it for me. wormwood was progression, this album is just a little bit uninspiring. glad i streamed it before considering buying it

Basically the same as Wormwood, but with a little show of possibly improvement coming their way. tAS has always been known for their chug-heavy and breakdown laden songs, but there are a few things out of the norm that make this album better. There are actually some riffs on certain songs (Our Lady of Perpetual Sorrow/Brain Death) to name a few. The album also has a much better closing than Wormwood's absolutely dreadful "Tactical Nuke". House of Abandon features such things as a solo and piano in it that give the album and band some much needed variety. Speaking of variety, if you're looking for it lyrically, this album is not for you, but it is if heavy, chugging, nihilistic, mosh worthy music is what you're searching for.

As much as I try to distance myself from comparing every new Acacia Strain album to Continent, their best album IMO, I have to say that this album proves to me that they are on a steep slope downward in their career and in desperate need of Continent-comparable album. Unfortunately, Death is the Only Mortal is more like the water causing the slope to become more slippery.

Listened to Victims of the Cave on Youtube and my impressions are: DAMN, THESE MOTHERFUCKERS STARTED RIPPING OFF MESHUGGAH!

brought back a little bit of the melody that was sparingly used in 3750 and continent, but it's still the same
chug-heavy, breakdown-abusing band you either love or hate, just with crisper production.
also, album artwork of the year

That opener is fucking creepy. I like me a nice big bowl of cherrios

Cool artwork, I hope Rise Record don't brainwashed them and this turns out to be a faggy post-hardcore crap.
