This has to be one of my favorite albums of all time, these musicians are absolutely amazing. This is definitely my new favorite band, this CD has not left my player. I have changed the other 4, but not this one.
The album starts you off with instantaneous death metal. No lead up, no intro, just heavy guitars playing a somewhat catchy riff and some very growly death vox. The techno breaks do a nice job of keeping the heaviness from becoming mundane or overbearing without making the music sound industrial. Some very DnB sounding break beats give some flavor, as well as Jo's singing. The way the clean female vocals intertwine with Lord K's vox is very pleasing to the ear, not to mention almost operettic. A bit of the album sounds similar but never gets repetitive. They bring the tempo down a little on Godslaughtering Murder Machine, but I don't think there's anything on this album that would qualify as a ballad. It never hits Opeth's Damnation feel. One of the other things I love about this album is the almost sarcastic names of some of the songs...Resurrected For Massive Torture, We Couldn't be Farther from the Truce, etc. Overall I would give this album a 100, but I might have to eat it if they put out something better, which is entirely possible
