2 stars Physicist is a pretty weak album by DT. I dare say it won't appeal to any traditional music styles: progressive metal, death metal, black metal nor alternative metal. The songs feel sometimes unfinished, there are is instrumental maturity and all is melted into a massive guitar riff soundscape. "Death" is the most brutal songs on the album and also one that catches the attention from the other mediocre songs. The bonus tracks help balance the otherwise monotonous album. "Irish Maiden" captures the listener by its name but unfortunately, less by the music. "Planet Rain" tries to save the progressive side of music by offering different motives but it is not enough for three stars.

This album is only for very liberal extreme metal fans or devoted DT fans.
