Let's hope they learned their lesson and will produce an album like their old ones (the line-up still doesn't look like it can deliver such an album but hopefully Flo's influence will be enough)

I'll check this out regardless, although I have a feeling it's going to be more of the same (in terms of repeating The Unspoken King). If you're going to stick to writing deathcore albums, at least learn how to write deathcore albums first.

Dooood!...C'mon. Jon Levasseur. It's still got Flo and Jon Levasseur. It's Cryptopsy. They are writing the "Whisper Supremacy" type stuff again, from what I hear so far. And they pointed out that there will be no clean vox. Let's respect 'em and give it a chance.

Let's all pray to the good angel Lucifer that this album is better than their last abination. After that release, they should have changed their name, or all shot themselves. No one can replace Lord Worm v___v, shame really.

Singer still sucks, but the general compositions are far better than they have been in a while.

This album is absolutely crushing, I don't know why it hasn't been so well received here.

I even dare to say that I prefer Matt's vocal over Lord Worm (now I'll wait for the death threats)

It was a good album ... I can not say it excellent because the vocals were not very good! I already have someone like *LORD WORM* vocal group ... There are high expectations of good counsel, rather than a single minimum *LORD WORM*...

Solid album, and drum work is beyond brilliant. The album may fly by in a mere 34 minutes but that's enough to keep the listener engaged throughout. 'Two-pound torch', 'Shag harbour's visitors' and 'Ominous' are especially good.
