Face of my innocence is one of the best songs ive ever heard .. the rest of the album is quite boring though, i dont know why

I don't really see the point of a rerelease at this point except as a cash in, and I can't imagine enough people will buy it to make it worthwhile. I already own the album and won't shell out for this.

That being said, it really is a great album, and the only Arsis album I really like(aside from the Diamond for Disease EP, which was awesome). ACoG is just packed with some of the best riffs I've ever heard. Pretty much every song on the album is standout.

Doesn't need to be remastered at all. I have a feeling they'll try to clean it up and sterilize it like 'We Are the Nightmare', and that was all well and good for that album, but this just sounds better a little bit fuzzier and raw.
Learn to adapt to the change, or get washed away like tears in the rain.

A Celebration of Guilt is a great album. It doesn't need to be remastered. It's their best album and it's a shame Arsis have had an overproduced sterile sound on their last two albums.
