Just over 5 minutes of some of the best slam ever written, that launches into space right at the end.
A Night in the Abyss Necropolis
This album fucking destroys! His vocals are absolute taste, big riffs, breakdowns, blast beats, symphonic stuff that isn't overpowering or braindead, decent songwriting, what's not to like?

Absolute banger of an album that gets better with every listen. Contrasts crushing heaviness with lush melodies to get me rock hard.

Bumping this up. This album brings the true deathcore spirit of being unafraid to do over the top shit, mixes it up constantly. Stands out amongst the tired downtempo tunnel throat crowd.

Alrakis Echoes From Eta Carinae
Anachronism Reflecting The Inside
Very catchy, band strikes me as something between Cryptopsy and Gorguts. Each track doesn't overstay it's welcome, the hard hitting parts aren't reused in a gimmicky fashion. Mixes it up with ambient synths on a track or two, and there's some brees.

Take all the best songs from this album, Swaecation, and Jxmtro, then you have a solid Rae Sremmurd album. Which is basically how I listen to the material across the three albums.

Honestly I think SO many bands are trying to do this sound recently, and only a few hit a certain quality bar, whether it's production, vocals, or songwriting. This album's definitely up there.

Takes a lot of the edge off the sound present in The Reject of Humanity, sacrificed for a more experimental touch that speaks more of their influences (trap, circus music etc). Makes sense if you see them live as their performance feels really out of place on a regular deathcore lineup.
