I haven't been a fan of Decapitated since their debut. That said, this is a fantastic album that easily rivals that one.

Having heard the album continuously for a while now, I've got to say that I'm a relieved man. Expectations were sky high at first, then went downhill after seeing the album title and cover. Not only did they prove me wrong, they've made a very strong release with a much-changed line-up, and that's highly commendable. I'm more than pleased with the album. A high 8 for me right now. May rise to a 9 if it grows on me.

Pretty solid, but not really all that memorable for me. "404" is really gnarly, though. Perhaps this album had too many expectations.

No one can compare it to the old albums, because Vogg did it with a diffrent members, and i think it wasn't that eazy on him, good album IMO

Wikipedia says:
Several riffs on the new album were created with previous drummer Witold "Vitek" Kiełtyka.

Great work by the new drummer, not so technical guitar work (but nice anyway), a little bit atmospheric songs and vocals that simply suck. Well, it seems quite similar to last album in some aspects, but it lacks the power good old Decapitated used to have.
I'll wait a little longer 'till I can rate it... by now 8 is well deserved.

Since when a cover and an album title have anything to do with the quality of the music?

Don't know about you, but to me, everything (including the cover and the album title) help form an intial impression of an album. Of course, the music's always top priority, but a great cover/album title puts you in the right mood to appreciate it more, in my opinion.

I guess I may be a little too much into digital. I couldn't care less about the cover and especially the album title if the music on the album is good. Sure, a good cover and a nice album title is always appreciated but it is just a plus, something that can be overlooked for me. I can understand that someone might have a first bad impression if the title and/or the cover is ugly as shit but I just don't understand how it changes anything about the music itself. I am not necessarily talking about you but I have seen people overlook an album simply because the cover and/or title weren't to their liking and I find that particularly ludicrous. You listened to the album so you do not fall into this category .

Interesting how Vitek gets writing credits for most of the songs

Not Decapitated's best, but at least The Knife is a top 10 Decapitated song, for me

Winds of Creation = THE death album. Having said that, I recommended the latest two only because those are much easier to get into. >:[
