|3.0 good||The way of the riff | July 3rd 17|
Russ Anderson gives it his all with a passionate vocal performance, aggressive yet melodic and moody, and the album is increasingly darker than Twisted Into Form, but they strip their prog. thrash in favor of a more groove oriented sound, and the final product is lacking in exciting riffs or sprawling guitar antics. It's disappointing considering how great Tim Calvert is as a shredder, but at least he lays down impressive guitar solos. However, the album is poorly made, in fact it's reasonably well crafted given its merits, the production is reliably good, there's flashes of brilliance here, and Russ Anderson doesn't disappoint. An acceptable release but a serious stepdown from their previous masterpieces.

Holy shit, every song on this album drags and drags and drags. Every time I try to listen to it I get bored and want to skip ahead. I sense some good riffs buried in here, but the layer of boredom masking them is just too deep for me to bother digging through.

There is hardly anything noteworthy or interesting here. While still talented, the band
failed to write compelling songs and seemed to have lost the technical edge that made them
great. More groove oriented and darker than their previous material, but still a boring
listen in comparison to Twisted into Form or Forbidden Evil.

Decent effort but the Bay Area boys were a little bit lost here. Miles away from their previous masterpiece.
