This album is very good, i was very lucky to go see them on tour with Arch Enemy and Exodus and got the last copy of this album and got it signed... Its a very good album, i dont think its as good as their first but its still up there

I don't know..for me We Are The Nightmare is better...more real death metal, and more more technical then the newest. It's not real Arsis. So....the oldest albums are better because they are pure technical death and arsis fans want this =]

Agree with MinaJunior...previous album is the best what they've done so far but when I was listening this new album for the first time and the first song (Forced To Rock) began my face was just like "oh my god"...fantastic guitar (solo, harmonics, everything) so here is my result: this album is a little bit worse but still too good to debate about their quality

Pretty decent album, only listened through about once. Hoping to get more into it.

I think this album is a great mix between old and new Arsis styles, but it's not on par with previous albums. Still lots of great solos and riffs (the Arsis specialty). A great album by most bands, a par album by Arsis.

I can't help but think that putting this album out so soon after <em>We are the Nightmare</em> hurt it slightly. Regardless, I'm already anxiously awaiting another Arsis release.

On a separate, somewhat related note, the red vinyl looks like a pool of blood on my record player, which is fucking badass.

Got mine at the Arch Enemy show also, pretty generic I think, but very listenable.

I like it better than We are the Nightmare. That album was just full of technical stuff that didn't amount to much quallity song writing. I feel more emotion and depth from the new album.

I'm sorry but this album is very weak. The only song i enjoyed was "Half Past Corpse O'Clock". After seing their promo video for "Forced To Rock" it didn't help a bit...

Oh, yeah, I'm not respectable, and never sensible,
maybe incredible so damn irascible and I like the things I do so hooray for me

Starve for the Devil KILLS. Loving it. I see the point of others saying it's not as full on death metal as "We Are the Nightmare", but all the elements that made me love Nightmare are present here, just with a bit more rock... Being into a range of musics, I pretty much judge each album on its individual merits, and there are definately enough mindfuck riffs and insane drumming to keep me very happy, and of course the madness of the progressions. I loved the video clip, but then again brutality and laughter go hand in hand for me.... Nothing funnier than baptising a dead nun in baby's blood...
