3.5 greatInfernis | May 20th 09

Lacks something. The guitars feel somewhat thin. The heavy parts are heavy, and the driving parts are great...but it's hard to feel like they are fused very well or coherently. While the riffing is tasteful and technical, it's hard to not feel like they're recycled due to Gorod's tendency to shred over sometimes simple rhythmic groove patterns.
Not as captivating as their last effort, but certainly a solid one. Some songs themselves are excellent and some of their best, otherwise...It's a solid album, perhaps somewhat underwhelming considering how great their previous releases were.

It's fast, it's heavy, it's progressive, it's got mindblowing instrumentation, and it's technical as all hell. Thing is, it's not Gorod.

Solid musical performances as expected but unfortunately the songwriting isn't amazing. "A Perfect Absolution" is definitely a step forward.

Diverted Logic is quite possibly the most annoying song I have ever heard.rOtherwise, this is too awesome

3.5 greatkocZkHa | July 30th 11

Guitars are fucking face melting though the long tracks could get a little boring. Still a great album recommended for every metal guy;)

4.0 excellentZolrak | June 3rd 11

Amazing album. I'm okay with the guitar wankery, the drums are not as "jazzy" and groovy as in the previous album and the vocals sometimes goes to the background after a few songs. The melodies are great (especially on the first two songs for which I'm addicted), but the problem goes on the next two songs, which are kind of awkward, slow-paced and groove driven songs that should've been let near the end; not bad songs but not in the proper order. This is what makes me feel disappointed about the album, that suddenly mid-through the album you feel like it lost its pace and you can't keep following it. BUT if you give it a few listens from "The Path" and forward, you'll find melody, harmony, ambient and progressivity. "A Common Hope" sounds like it could be the first track on Leading Vision, and "Watershed" is clearly their best instrumental.
I don't want to extend a lot more (which I already did =P) but I'll resume: listen after midway the album and you'll find this album has its charm.
By the way, they released their EP trailer and sounds just great! One of the acoustics is a nice version of "Blackout" and I'm looking forward to what they have to offer on that 14 minutes song.

Excellent songwriting mixed with technical genius. A few drawn out sections. Tons of melody mixed with some dissonance.

3.0 goodGregBP | May 19th 09

It's good... but it lacks some of the really interesting parts the previous albums had, like the end of 'Here Die Your Gods' from LV and the awesomeness of 'Intro'/'Gutting Job' from Neurotripsicks.
It's alright, but why bother when LV and Neurotripsicks are exponentially better? I'll need a few more listens to see if anything really pops out at me.

Initial listen has left me somewhat underwhelmed.
