Alright, I was a bit skeptical when the sticker on the album said "The next best thing in Death Metal", but it didn't lie. "Like Angels Weeping (The Dark)" is probably the best song on the album, so it's no wonder they decided to put it at the number one spot.
The drumming is very fast and very tight with the guitars. The guitarists are very adept at making transitions from blisteringly fast shredding to slower, chunkier rhythm sections which gives a lot of character to the songs.
There isn't a lot to say about this album, really. It's done and it's done very well. It features everything you would ever want in a death metal band. Brutal vocals, distorted guitars, and spastic drumming.
One song of particular interest is "To Reign Again". It starts off with a clean, almost acoustic sounding intro. When you first listen, it's like "What is this? I thought I got Kataklysm, not John Mayer", but then all hell breaks loose. Noy only is this a good display of musicianship on behalf of the guitars (they can play something other than metal), but it really makes for an interesting guitars, especially when coupled with a few solo bass riffs in there. Easily one of the best songs on the album.
Another excellent song is "It Turns To Rust". This is a very bouncy, catchy song. I can definitely picture myself moshing and headbanging to it.
I have not heard any of Kataklysm's older stuff, but I've been desperately searching ever since hearing this album. Truly one of the best bands I've heard in a very long time and this album is all to blame.
