Damn… this is a hard thing to swallow. With Passion’s music is somewhere between Technical Death Metal and Hard Core. They were formed in 2002 and this is their second album, and technically they are quite good but even after numerous listens nothing, (except for a few guitar-melody-lines), really stands out. 

To put it simple… they totally drown their music in riffs, twists and turns and already after a few tracks you’re feeling bored. And then we have the vocals… aggressive alright, but I can’t understand a single word and it’s just “screams”… - cool down a bit…! 

The production is alright but the drums sounds like crap. Just like the drummer is beating the hell out of a HAT! 

Sorry can’t stand it anymore. Just picture Necrophagist mixed with a Hard Core band and you know what I mean. 

Nothing more than background music to me :(
