1 stars Aggressive and boring.

There are many many critics out there to death/extreme metal. They say it's just mindless, angst filled teens out of touch with reality. I typically laugh at the stubbornness of these individuals. Unfortunately, there's always records like this which are almost of no value to the listener, and help to serve this stereotype (although this is still better than other stuff out there), especially if you are around 40 years old.

It's aggressive, loud, complex, but ultimately it's completely unfulfilling. There's a big difference between this material and Meshuggah's material. The volume is almost always at a max here, there's little in terms of exploration and song development (what we start with we end with), and as others have so aptly put it, it's just noisy. This isn't to say this material isn't complex. It really is some very technical material, but it's ultimately out of touch with anyone who isn't filled with rage. A poor release and genuinely not a band I would look to for direction/guidance within the prog metal genre.
