5.0 classicBRAman22 | June 28th 15

Fantastic instrumentals make up this rather thrashy and progressive album making it stand at a very high place among metal releases.

3.5 greatChristian McGuire | June 21st 16

Well it has even worse overly compressed and thin production, and songs can be overlong and disjointed at times and John is even more annoying, it is made up by better riffing, a unique atmosphere, pure baddassery at times and pretty much the entire song Exodus at the end.

Bump

A metal album's awesomeness is directly proportional to how embarrassing its cover art is.
