Everything that makes slam boring is on full display

3.5 greatSinNanna | March 1st 21

After years of anticipation, delay and an unfortunate lineup change, the russian slam heavyweights finally come through with the follow-up to their widely beloved (relatively speaking) 2012 album The Anomalies Of Artificial Origin. Gone are the distinct and rhythmic vocal patterns from Matti Way which really made that particular release so special to a lot of people, but sole original member Alexander Kubiashvili of this now two-piece project has done his best to provide a worthwile replacement to try and make up for it, with Angel Ochoa of Cephalotripsy and Disgorge fame taking over vocal duties. A lineup change no less a vocal change isn't anything new for AP, but where Anomalies gave up that grimier, more mudcaked production aesthetic of the debut it made up for me with Matti's unique approach to applying groove to complement the music. As respectable as a vocalist Angel is within his own right with his very well-executed form of that low, guttural burping vocal style commonly associated with slam, he doesn't really provide that same balance for me that Matti did back when AP switched to a more digital and cleanly produced sound. Still, despite the fact that those heavily edited, sample-replaced drums definitely give me a bit of ear fatigue, I do still come away from this album enjoying it on a casual level, as I don't think it goes so deep into overproduced territory that it is devoid of any visceral qualities. And compared to a lot of the more deathcore-leaning sounds you'll come across a lot of newer popular slam releases, I certainly prefer this a lot more.

This isn't nearly as good as The Anomalies of Artificial Origin but it isn't a disappointment either; Angel is a serviceable replacement for Matti and the increase in more traditional death metal sections helps contrast and emphasize the slammier moments. Was it worth the 9 year wait? No, probably not, but it's good enough and tbh it's just nice to have AP around again.

The first few minutes are boring but the last half of the album improves the album, especially because of the guitars.
