5 stars As a lover of both prog metal and Swedish metal, I really enjoyed this album. I approached this album with a prog metal mindset rather than a death metal mindset, and what I got in terms of progressive was very impressive. The album is just one long 40 minute song that is a treat to listen to. It has death metal riffs, progressive metal ideas and tendencies, and the Opeth singer, what more could you ask for in a heavy prog metal album? The album has softer passages as well, which is a good break from all the heaviness that goes on. Upon first listen however, I was not getting into it as much as I was the second listen. It's just one of those albums that upon first listen, you're not as into it or impressed as you are the second and third listen.

If you like Opeth and later Death then you will really enjoy this album. A masterpiece of heavier progressive metal and death metal. Great riffs, one great long song and excellent instrumentation are just some of the treats you get when you're listening to this album.
