DamnÖ this album is a hard thing to swallow. I have been listening to it for days now, but when the CD is done I remember almost nothing from it and I feel very exhausted. Some of the songs are too Death-Core for my taste and some of the songs reminds me a tad of Psycroptic (and thatís fine) but I do think that the average Metalhead will find very little of interest here.  

The band has passion and conviction, but there is too much going on to captivate the listener, and most of the tracks sound the same to me. Every time I sit down and listen to this album Iím overcome by the uncontrollable urge to be somewhere else doing something else, anything really, as long as it doesnít involve listening to this CD.

The songs are well played and everything is well produced as well so there is not that much to complain about, other than the tracks are way too generic to leave a lasting impression.

Fans of Death-Core and Technical Death Metal should check it out but most Metal fans can easily live without this release.  

Memorable tracks: Not really :(
