4.0 excellentProgamuffin | June 13th 15

Is it just me or did this band take several aspects of Exhorder's debut album? The high
frequency production with audible instruments, hearing some death metal riffs in a not-
really-death-metal-but-not-too-far-apart-from-it metal sound, the aggressively busy
drumming, two seven-minute songs, and some slow moments just remind me so much of Slaughter
in the Vatican that I swear it almost sounds like it's Exhorder worship.

What sets it apart though is that the drumming is somewhat more busier and more wtf tempo
changes and time signatures (and at times noticeably too busy), slightly more fast paced,
somewhat melodic, more tremolo picks that at times some riffs sound like they would belong
in black metal, and it seems the vocalist only has two tones: moderate shriek and a high
pitch shriek, but regardless of a few small flaws this is still a fucking impressive,
overlooked tech metal gem.

Oh, and did I mention that Schismatic Injective Therapy has a really awesome wammy-bar-
abuse-hell bit starting at the 5:08 mark and goes on for 42 seconds?
