Loved Unnatural selection but the pacing could've been better. Hoping this is awesome too.

Maybe I did, maybe I didn't. Maybe I'm just using Trump reference without no relevance

Can't say it's a disappointing album, can't say it's spectacular either. Some ways it reminds of old Havoc (1st album to be precise), some ways this is more technical and both classic and modern MegaDave influences are unquestionable. While I'm not quite fond of all of the songs, there's some killer moments, especially "Intention To Deceive" and "Circling The Drain" could see some further listening. Once again I'm to ask; why it's gotta be ~60 minute thrash album, and how would this album fare if it was 3-4 songs shorter

Not liking this. But I haven't liked anything they have done since Burn. I respect that they were trying to do something different (think bad Megadeth) but this fails.

It is definitely better package than "Unnatural Selection". The rhythm got better and production improved a lot. The record picked up from 2nd half( "Ingsoc") and then crushed it through all along. I really wished they could have carried out the same momentum( like in 2nd half) but wasted too much time in "experimenting with sound". It ended up sounding like "forceful attempt" to make "songs appealing" rather than doing differently to "familiar thrash style".

Nevertheless, it's a great release.

Nice megadeth style political lyrically approach when enemy don't come over seas, way of band. Technical thrash metal, somehow its boring here, but some songs worked out.

Overall an average album, but so far, Masterplan is my favorite Thrash metal song of the year.

More technical and in the end much much less interesting and engaging than Unnatural Selection, the technicality is done at the expense of the thrash feel. I don't think I will be listening it even a second time.

It come out to be more refined than "Unnatural Selection" especially vastly improving in overall technicality. I found that the start was pretty awesome and then switching over to 2nd half - it didn't able to carry that spark and momentum any more. Just like in "Time is Up", it was one hell of a beating from start to finish. It horribly lacked in "Unnatural Selection" and same was in this record.

But, it was a great effort. I can certainly revisit to "Conformicide".

Unnatural Selection had that urgency that thrash needs, this in spite of its better technicality chugs along at most parts and is just boring. I think I will take the last one any day over this.

Yeah, it was in need 'cause they left from one of the their strongest release ever "Time is Up". I remember Havok did rounds of interviews across touring keeping our faith in them to deliver another strong motherfucker and they named as "Unnatural Selection". And oh boy, it came out to be a disaster. Totally letdown.

Haven't heard their first 2 albums so can't say how it is a letdown but I certainly enjoy it a lot even when I spin it these days.
