Rating: 6 Never expected to enjoy this. Since I didn't expect it to be cheesy shred-filled metal on speed.

  Streaming at their Bandcamp page for anyone interested. Seems like pretty standard melodic tech-death to me, but I'm sure others into that kind of thing will appreciate it a lot more than I do.

  Kind of don't mind it. The production is pleasantly rough and the melody offsets the usual tech-death sterility quite well.

Rating: 10 Killer album, totally surprised.

Rating: 9 I fucking love this band and especially this album. It's like Mors Principium Est and At the Gates made a baby with tech death. "Marching Through the Flames of Tyranny" is my favorite on this one. My favorite album of 2015 which I unfortunately didn't discover until more than a year after its release.

Rating: 9 I'm always surprised when I revisit this album by just how great I find it. Definitely one of the better "shred-tastic" tech/melo-death albums I can think of.
