Booooooring. There's honestly nothing to write about this album, you've heard it all before. Death metal. That's all there is to it.

Bad? Nah, not really. Bad would be good. Bad would leave me with something to talk about. This is just unremarkable, uninspired, and frankly, once again, a big heaping waste of talent. Bad is seeing a band completely incapable of pulling off a certain sound attempt to do so anyways. Bad is hearing a mix of two genres that sound horribly atrocious together. Bad is a massive display of delusions of grandeur. Ominous Crucifix isn't bad. What they are is a giant waste on all fronts; time, effort, and talent.

Talent, you say? Well, I'll hand it to them, everything is done really well. You can't pull off textbook unless you actually read the textbook. Ominous Crucifix seemed to have studied the textbook front to back, then re-wrote the whole damn thing, down to the font size and formatting. The vocals are gruesomely cool, the production has that cool sort of dungeon-echoing sort of sound to it, and hell, the guitars have the right level of abrasiveness. All this counts for nothing, as they can't seem to write their own songs worth a damn.

Remember my previous review for Vore? Yeah, it's basically that level of bread-and-butter death metal, only the song writing isn't nearly as good despite the relatively cooler production and overall sound. Get it together, Ominous Crucifix, you've got a cool sound, now utilize it better.
