This album really impressed me in the minute I pushed play on my Stereo; Cynic the King without Crown, Cynic is like H.P Lovecraft or Vincent van Gogh, artists that public worshiped only after they died. Cynic released only one Full Length and a lot of Demos, nowadays people is hungry to get their material, fortunately I got Focus, so let's talk about this awesome album.

I don't find this to be ferocious at all, the vocals and down-tuned guitar seem pointless.

Well I say ferocious in comparison to the lighter elements of the album.
