4.0 excellentKit Brown | March 19th 12

willfellmarsy doesn't know dick. This is the most complicated and intricate album in the rband's fucking awesome discography. If the jazz guitar section in "Carved In The Wind" rdoesn't please you, I don't know what death metal could.r...and apparently I ruined his day more than this album did. Keep pretending to know more rabout metal than everyone else, if that's what gets you off. And there's no other memorable rjazz parts on the album? Did you even listen to "Varangian Paradise"? Thanks for keeping the rspirit of self-entitled Sputnik elitism alive in 2012.

Where are the Gorod parts? Album sounds like new Gorod is aiming for American death metal fans, by far the most generic collection of songs they have done (I question whether i'd even know this was Gorod if it wasn't for 5000 at a Funeral and Carved in the Wind)...the biggest problem (besides the lack of original songwriting so present in all of their previous work) is the new vocalist...he's awful, not a moment where he doesn't pull down the overall experience due to his tiresome, overdone, i've heard this in every deathcore band ever approach...when you have to throw in spoken word sections in a 38 minute album just to keep the vocals sounding fresh, there's a big problem and any time he varies it up(spoken, singing), it comes off as forced if not laughable (There is only one...Goddddd) . For me, no other death metal band can touch any of Gorod's previous work but this ain't that Gorod...this will be the album that wins them many fans in the scene, but probably will be the jump the shark moment...if you liked Gorod and what they were about, you won't like this...I couldn't be more disappointed




Ps Thor is a fag, keep being the News Mod, if you can swallow this mainstream bologna you're just a sheep. This album is made to appeal to the lowest common denominator. Carved in the Wind is the only song that comes near the rest of their work...this is laughable...the spoken word sections are atrocious and the majority of the album sounds like it could be the most recent All Shall Perish release. The uniqueness is gone thus it appeals to users like thor who want "yo that was an awesome, easy to swallow listen. My father penetrates me at night"...the drummer is invisible, no finesse... And where's the bassist? Point to apart like any fill on even their worst, Process of a New Decline. Where is there well thought out, full songs like Disavow Your God, Almighty's Murder, State of Seceret? It's made to be accessible...



Oh wait, you said it's "fucking awesome". That's definitely a legit definition. I'm sure the majority of the fans of this would be like "yo mah dude, this fucking awesome shit is like so cool...I mean, the vocalist double demon layered bullshit vocals so hard. And the guitar stuff is fucking awesome. And the drummer is so fast man he just blasts and doubles all over that fucking awesome shit I just can't handle it. I don't remember any parts other than the wicked guitars tho because they're so fucking awesome. And that one memorable jazz part on the ENTIRE ALBUM. Yo its so kewlllll. And that there is only one god part lolololololo rofl lmao omg omg Soooooooooo RAD...Tubular and shit"

4.5 superbzarahuztra | March 20th 12

a technical death metal band releasing yet another superb album.

3.0 goodCaptainDooRight | March 20th 12

good music right here. I don't like to call this technical death metal because of the cliche, rather I view this as death metal/jazz/ progressive

Bump

3.0 goodsmashedneck | March 19th 12

this album is good, just not great, and the new vocalist just doesnt cut it IMO.

Bump

0.0 Steven28 | March 19th 12

As good as leading vision; incorporates their many eclectic influences into one solid, outstanding album!

Bump

3.0 goodThomas Michael Morris | March 16th 12

Album definitely has its neat moments but it's pretty much 'just a tech death album.' I'll just listen to Leading Vision again.

Bump

0.0 Hawks | March 15th 12

I was thinking about giving this album a chance, but I'm not gonna listen to this until a user with credible taste in death metal tells me that this doesn't completely suck cock. Until then, I'm just gonna assume it's awful because it's modern tech death.

3.0 goodtoolguitarkid | March 13th 12

gorod sheds more death metal in favor of a more experimental vibe. solid, but lacking compared to their previous albums.
