Some of you may have your pre orders in or have realized it is on the internet.

I think this is a huge step up from their previous records.

The songs are more cohesive and it is more technical. So far I am on my second listen and I am loving it. I would give this album a 7/10 maybe higher after a few more listens.

What do you guys think of the record?

Saw these guys for the second time at Central Illinois Metalfest (RIP) this past summer and they were definitely a highlight for me. Real nice, down to earth dudes with lots of talent. I've heard the songs they've posted on facebook, and I agree... a big step in the right direction. Looking forward to hearing the whole thing.

It's amazing how their drummer isn't even twenty yet and he's playing Longstreth/Kollias-level shit. Anyways, I'm liking this a lot. They've found their identity, and it makes them all the better for it.

I think I have decided Sirens in Electric Veils is my favourite song. I am sure more of you have checked this out by now. Any new opinions?

Haven't heard much yet but I plan to get the CD at some stage soon. Glad to hear it's a step-up!

Yeah, Metamorphignition is definitely better. Reflections was decent, but at the end of the day it was just another Unique Leader brutal/tech outfit. Metamorphignition is not like that.

I listened to this album while studying for fluid mechanics yesterday and wow what a good one it was. While I haven't listened to Reflections Within Dissonance more than once, I still really liked it the time I listened to it. I was waiting for Metamorphignition to come out ever since I heard about it. Once it did, it went straight to the top of albums in my queue to be listened to (I love technical death, regardless of whether it's brutal or melodic or whatever). It was definitely worth the priority and I will be listening to it again soon.

This album was definitely an improvement over there first two, which says a lot since I still liked Reflections a lot (did not like Existential Chaos at all). Seems like they have found their stride with this album.

I think it's absolutely incredible. The music is much more technical, bot not cloyingly. Also, there are a lot of progressive elements added this time around. The Omnipus is a magnificent and epic piece of work. The choral riff in The Withered Hands Of Mortality is another highlight.
