What an improvment - 95%

This cd is muuuuuuuuuuuuch better then the debut. Gone are the Meshuggah-esque chugs and gone are the slower songs. TIP have become a new monster. Now that Henrik Ohlsson is the vocalist as well as drummer the band is only three piece, and that is kind of a problem because Johan Ekman's lower growl fir the music better then Henrik's raspy scream. Most of this album (tracks three through seven) is a concept album. It tells the story the end of the world (what a shock) and it's rebirth. The songs are now faster and more ass kicking. The solos aren't any better (could they be?) but they fit the thrashier songs. The lead-off, Dehumanized, is one of the best on the album and is worth the $16 for it alone. The Visionaire has a very long and brilliant solo. All of the concept songs are great minus the pointless piano intro. Escpeicially Prophecies which has probably my favorite Peter Lake solo. All fans of Atheist, Nocturnus, and the last two Death albums must own The Armageddon Theories. Killer.
