Septic Flesh did it better

4.5 superbslaythedragon | August 12th 13

Their best album yet. It's like Agony but it strikes a better balance between symphony and metal. The production is also much better; the drums and symphony aren't as overpowering, and the guitars are a lot louder and more technical like in Oracles. The album is still heavy as fuck but Epilogue and Under Black Sails showcase some cool experimentation. I also appreciate the fact that there's much less clean vocals on this album. They use an opera singer in a few tracks (probably just under half) and though it's a little offputting at first, actually you get used to it and particularly at the end of Towards the Sun, it works really well. I am very happy with this album, well worth the wait.

This album makes me want to put on a suit of armor and ride a horse into battle.

3.5 greatRobert Garland CONTRIBUTOR | July 25th 13

The technicality's still here, the pace is maintained and the symphonic is as prominent as ever. It's not perfect, this combination will always clash heads but it seems that Fleshgod Apocalypse are finally putting the two together in a manageable and interesting form. The album does what it needs to and well, but the almost fifty-five minutes of symphonic cliches tied over a melodic tech-death instrumental effort does tire the listener. It's got room to grow, just not a lot.

2.0 poorMister Twister | June 23rd 13

The first album was mostly tech-death with shoehorned symphonic elements. The second album was symphonic death metal, but the tech-death elements were notably less. Hopefully, this finds a balanced medium between the two which can make fans of either album happy.

I love that part in that one song where the guitarists lazily tremolo pick some notes and the bassist yells something unintelligible in falsetto.

4.5 superbDarknessPrevails | May 6th 14

A very epic release that combines technicality with symphonic elements to create a superb metal opera.

Bump

2.5 averageReAnimator | February 24th 14

A major step down both in production and composition, "Labyrinth" lacked the energy and verve that seemed so effortless on "Agony." Future listens will hopefully reveal something I may have missed, but it's an underwhelming listen for the moment.

I got lost after track one.

2.0 poorMicah-Nahum Ferguson. | August 14th 13

Fleshgod continues their upheaval of the good elements of their sound and creates an ostentatious album that has good material, but is completely destroyed by unneeded operatic influences and ear-shattering overproduction. Seriously, someone needs to readjust those levels! Greatly disappointing, but not surprisingly so.
