These guys always write some sick riffs, looking forward to this.

First song released was awesome, if a bit of a departure from their thrashy roots. Artwork is also a departure. Regardless, I have no issue believing this will be excellent.

I read an interview with the new vocalist (also of Wolvhammer), his favorite band's are The Cure and Leviathan, and his vocal style and approach is bringing something new for this band, should make for something great.

But his vocals sound like every other black metal harsh vocalist, how is he bringing something new?

True. But I read somewhere that he is a big part of the reason why they are going for a darker and more black metal than thrash sound.

Vocals remind me of Petrozza. The album sounds really nice for now.

They definitely took a different approach on this one. However, it still has those riffs that I look for when I listen to this band. It's incredibly unique, genre pushing, well-written, and consistent. AoTY contender in my book.

Decent aggressor and great music what can be different as old 80's aggressive metal , same principle but modern progressive touch what does not suck.

Only other Skeletonwitch album I've heard (as far as I remember) is Beyond the Permafrost, and I find this one not all too similar. Pretty damn enjoyable stuff, however, so I guess I may needa delve into some of the other albums as well.

The occasional tasty thrash riff almost stood its ground in the average dime-a-dozen meloblack sound of the rest of the album. But alas, the bland production, harmless melodies, and undistinguished vocals were too overwhelming to save this album.

Some of the longer songs drag on a bit but other then that there is plenty of catchy meaty riffs to be found and i never really cared for the the vocals since skeletonwitchs instruments are what i like
