  Guitarist Paolo Pieri commented: "'Regicide' revolves around the themes of destruction and rebirth and the killing of the king -- be he your own fears, prejudices or dogmas that you build inside yourself to cope with reality. Only by letting go of those illusions and tearing down the walls of ignorance and fear that society, religion and every form of dysfunctional authority you interjected during your life, can you start to rebuild your own path as a free man that has no need for a king."

Rating: 10 It's good but not great. Pretty much only Resurgence Of The Empire stands out to me. The rest of the songs seem to melt into one sounding song

  I need to give it more spins before making my mind up on this, but on first impressions it seems solid but unspectacular.

Rating: 6 Kinda dissapointed with this one after the excellent "Sedition".

Rating: 8 Very solid album. Hour Of Penance always amazes me with their albums.

Rating: 8 This is improvement comparing to Sedition. More momorable album, with more heavy and slow riffs which i find as a must in this kind of Death Metal.

  Was disappointed with Sedition for the most part, and this is similar, maybe slightly better, but need more listens to truly judge. agree with others about a lot of it sounding very samey.

Certainly doesn't touch the absolute quality of the vile conception and paradogma, love those two albums

  7- not as good as their last one. I will wait to buy it when the price of CD drops.

  Cool concept, boring album. Contemporary death-metal-by-numbers.

  Pretty decent death metal album. The vocals remind me of Belphegor at times, but are for me what makes this album worse than it should be. Somehow they just drag the overall quality down a bit. The musicianship is solid and stays that way for most of the album, though a couple of songs fail to continue the pace. Personal highlights for me would be "Resurgence of the Empire" and "Redeemer of Atrocity".
