Guest review by

Well, I was sitting around, thinking, ?I should probably review something, but what?? I haven's gotten any new albums the last couple of weeks, so it had to be something old. It was then that I realized that Metal Storm was missing material on my personal favorite brutal death band: Cryptopsy. I therefore decided to eliminate the problem.

Rating: 9 This album is madly under-rated. The technicality is off the charts.

Rating: 8 Another solid effort from Cryptopsy. Although I personally think the vocals in this are somewhat weaker compared to the previous album, they still do a good job in keeping up with the great instrumentation. 'Voice of unreason', 'shroud' and 'Back to the worms' are the album's highlights for me.

Rating: 9 I guess what many people don't understand is that this album is not supposed to be pure aggression and destruction. In this particular release the band opted for an extremely technical and less aggressive sound (even though it still is very aggressive). This release is not like the others. You really need to concentrate while listening to this release in order to notice the song structures. There is also some experimentation going on in this album (was that a didgeridoo screams go unheard?). This album marks the beginning of the Alex Auburn era. The next album, however, even surpasses this one in terms of atmosphere and experimentation (and it got Lord Worm!). I actually think that DiSalvo's weaker vocals fit to this release very well (his voice was also really good on Whisper Supremacy).
