Guest review by
Got Mayhem?

For 40 years Metal has wrecked havoc upon this planet and over those 40 years we've seen brilliant bands, terrible bands, and bands so bland they might as well have not played anything at all. With literally tens of thousands of bands in existence the most difficult feat of a modern group is to be completely and utterly original.

Rating: 10 Holy fuck!!!! I just picked this up at the record store as a random buy, and i don't have the words to even begin to describe this brilliant work of art. I will in a few months though....

How I wish I could just walk into a record store and find stuff like this you did the right thing.

Rating: 9 I bought this album a few years ago and only appreciated it. I thought it sounded a little too thinly produced ( scattered or web-like?) Listening to it recently It's become my favorite DSO album. It's really cool how the tempo is up-kept, changed, and bounced between the instruments and it just keeps coiling and shifting throughout. I'd say the seemingly thin production helps everything stand out, what with the velocity of tempos and melodies coming at you.

  Nah, I gotta agree. Kenose and Si Monumentum are great but this is a whole nother ball game.

Rating: 6 The quality of their music truly dropped with this album.

Rating: 9 This album actually reminds me a lot of Mayhem's "Ordo ad Chao". I mean, the albums sound nothing alike, in actuality, but I feel they share a very similar essence. They're both very dense, chaotic-sounding albums with a lot of crazy black metal experimentation going on. Funny that they were both released only a few months apart.
