4.0 excellentNicholas von Nuclearpiss | July 17th 16

this is a wonderfully filthy death metal gem from the bowels of hell. the production is dirty
(though to a fault, as the riffs sometimes become unintelligible) with a nice low end. the bass is
clearly audible, and a good thing too, because the bass work here is excellent. a wide variety of
tempos are explored which helps the album avoid being predictable, but still segues seamlessly
from one passage to another. there are a few elements that make this album ever so slightly
unique: 1. while sounding very American, some eerie melodies reminiscent of Scandinavian death
metal pop up here and there in the riffs and solos 2. synths are used sparingly to accentuate the
dark atmosphere of the album. they also use an acoustic guitar on In Cosmic Solitude, not
something you would really expect for an album that sounds like this (though that is probably the
most Scandinavian sounding song on the album). to their credit, they dont just tack it on as an
intro and then begin the song, it feels like a very necessary piece of the puzzle, and i think
that sums up their songwriting skills pretty well. in fact, if you need anymore convincing, you
should go listen to that song and see for yourself (that fucking wailing guitar lead ugh).
