2 stars Systematic Chaos was a dissapointment to me. When I listened the first song: In The Presence Of Enemies Pt.1 I was very pleased about it, but after Forsaken, Constant Motion and The Dark Eternal Night, the dissapointment struck me. Forsaken is quite ok at first but the chorus is horrible. Same with constant motion. It's ok for a song to have heavy riffs there and there but a song based wholly on a hevy riff... it just shows a lack of inspiration. Besides it sounds just like metallica. Then The Dark Eternal Night. Whose idea was it to put the vocals through that distortion? It really sucks. However there are some good tracks too. Repentance is ok, Prophets of war is ok, Ministry of Lost souls is actually really good. Also In The Presence Of Enemies Pt.2 is very listenable. The Album is not SO bad after all but my expectations were very high after the brilliant Octavarium
