2.0 poorZach | October 17th 17

Good riffs, excellent gutturals, garbage ass drum tone. The patterns themselves are still very energetic and interesting but they also sound like someone as dry and awkward as a drum set could possibly sound. It's like someone constantly patting on their mattress for a drum best. Its unfortunate how this one flaw just ruins the whole record, because otherwise this would be a very worthy addition to Immo's catalog.

1.5 very poorwesterndragon | April 13th 16

See my thoughts on Here in After for a full explanation of my rating.

I think the songwriting (on the first half of the album at least) started to improve on this album, but the production fell off a cliff which kind of cancels out the positive vibes I had for Failures for Gods. The second-half of the album will make you fall asleep due to how repetitive and bland it is.

The lyrics on this record declined in quality as well. The chant in No Jesus, No Beast is the most childish shit I've ever heard.

The production really kills the album for me. If there is one album where the sound of the drums ruin the album, this is it. The drums sound so flat and weak, particularly the bass drum, I just want to slap the engineer.

You can whine about the production, but not about the sheer quality the album definitely has. One simply does not get disappointed by Immolation.

The intro to the coda that would little more than a year later become Close to a World Below...Failures for Gods is just Part One of Immolation?s magnum opus.
