  Excellent album! Reminds me a little of Dissection for some reason. Definitely working its way up on my Top 10 this year.

I agree...Warnaments was a more memorable album to me. But Death Meditations was good.

Rating: 9 If u take Dimmu Borgir and Dissection and blend them in the mixer, U will get TORCHBEARER !!! This is a very good release.

Rating: 8 This is so much better than Warnaments, in my opinion. Warnaments had a lot of fillers, but this is like one long orgasm of super-catchy lightning-speed Melodic Death. Freaking love it!
