The Faceless have come a long way already over a career that hasn't even spanned them a decade, proving with each release their ever-evolving skill and maturation as composers. First there was 2006's Akeldama, a release that most everyone would regard as their worst due to its *gasp!* deathcorish elements. Then came 2008, and the band stepped up their game with Planetary Duality, moving further away from their deathcore roots and into some more promising tech death territory. That album brought hope for them to push the new sound even further, and now with 2012's Autotheism, those hopes have been met, the band even further transcending the foolish scene kid wanderings of their past in the process.

Many people criticize Autotheism as being a departure from The Faceless's previous direction, hoping that the progression from Akeldama to Planetary Duality would yield a third album even heavier and more technical than its predecessors. Autotheism is certainly in a much different vein from the band's previous efforts, being more progressive than technical, but it represents their creative and musical height, drawing on multiple influences to form what seems to be the true sound of The Faceless.

Rating: 9 Mid way through just the second track, and I can say this is a damn fine release of extreme metal. reminds me a bit of between the buried and me

Really good indeed. Thanks for the suggestion dear! It's definitely a good mix between more extreme metal and prog.

It's interesting that you say BtBAM, because I was thinking more that I hear some of Opeth in them during the calmer interludes. I will have to listen more closely during the next listen.

Rating: 7 They really reinvented themselves with this one. It just doesn't click with me though. As with all their albums.

Wait.. beyond? As in better?
I love both bands, but BtBaM's latest release made me think they were lightyears ahead of pretty much everyone.

Rating: 8 What an amazing fucking album. Every song sounds distinct and stands out from the rest, something which I find to be exceedingly rare in the technical death department. A phenomenal effort !

Rating: 8 Surprised at how much I enjoy this album now, given how much I used to despise everything The Faceless had done (I still hate the previous two albums). As a guitarist I have a certain appreciation for that aspect of the music, as it's a very interesting blend of styles. Michael Keene is a complete beast

Rating: 9 The lyrics were great, crushing the "Superstition" and rising the "Wisdom" .
My final rating is "8.7" .
