8.0
Staving off doubts given their frequency of line-up changes, Mors Principium Est consistently prove themselves to be a vital name in melodic death metal. Not for reasons of clear originality of style, but vital for their shared vitality, a remarkable feat considering the rate at which their rhythm guitars switch hands.

Amazing and different album of MPE. This time we got more atmospheric album, with only few song focused on memorable choruses. This time it's more about the whole song, guitar melodies and rythm takes the main part. Very enjoyable evolution. Definitely better than Insomnium for me.

This is definitely some of MPE's best work! Personally, I think it IS their best. The guitars are just flawless and the vocals are brutal, but still very clear. And no cleans to be found, as per MPE's trademark!

Can't believe they changed all main guitar members and now they sound even much better than before. That is nonsense.

Well done MPS!

p.s
As for me I find out such thing: every time If I expected high level of something it wont munching my expectation and vice versa. So that is applied to music albums as well.

Way better than their last two, what a pleasant surprise! My favorite MDM album so far this year. The last two had standout tracks but this one's a straight listen.

Hard to tell this close to release, but it makes my dick rock hard to see this at #2 on the 2014 albums chart, 8 slots up from the next MDM album, and I loved Shadows of the Dying Sun.

Also, can we get a new MS Awards category for album art? This one steals the cake easily!

Second best album after The Unborn, but that's almost impossible to top.

The boys of Mors Principium Est have produced a really awesome album this time around. I was pretty disappointed when ...and Death said Live came out and I think I gave that album about one and a half spins. The music on Dawn of the 5th Era reminds me more of The Unborn and Liberation = Termination (which I liked). Cool, memorable lyrics and riffs. Ville is a great vocalist!

Excellent album. It's not as consistent to me as Liberation = Termination (and I realize some people really don't like that album), but it was definitely worth the buy. It's just slightly below the previous album for me. Honestly I hated Inhumanity as it feels like they were trying to hard to sound like their peers, and Unborn is great, but not as great as everyone says.

I really like the first part of the album is one of the best work by them so far,but the second part just gets too monotonous for me.

Probably their best album to date. Sounds a whole lot better than the Unborn to me as well. Can't really explain why honestly... production, riffs, intros? I dunno, just feels better to me.

I don't think this site will ever award another 9.0 or greater to a new album. Ever.

I don't get it. It happens pretty frequently as far as I'm concerned
