Guest review by

There would be few albums that one could describe as more schizophrenic than Edge Of Sanity's Infernal. Not schizophrenic as in lots of different influences ala Atheist or demented sound ala Meshuggah but rather schizophrenic as in a band tearing itself apart due to irreconcilable differences.

Indeed by 1997, there was a major conflict waging as to the future of the band between vocalist Dan Swano and guitarist Andreas "Dread" Axelsson. The rest of the band appeared to side with Axelsson with only drummer Benny Larsson playing on all tracks.

  Not bad, but far away Crimson I & II.

  Dross. Just like Cryptic. Not even going to bother finishing this. Hard to believe Swano had any hand in the song writing.

  Not really dross, but definitely uninspired compared to the rest. Still some great melodies to find.
