5 stars This, to my ears, is a superb album, although I can easily understand that it would get some less than favourable reviews. It is a fairly extreme sound, with heavy guitars and sometimes dizzying rhythms. It is not foot-tapping music in the conventional sense as you have often to do some counting to follow the music! Brutally poetic lyrics delineate aspects of the disorientation and alienation of the human condition , and are screamed effectively by a vocalist who deserves credit for beingable to enunciate the word 'exterminate' without sounding like a Dalek! The guitar solos are unique, and sound mindlessly technological, fitting well with the relentless sonic onslaught. great stuff!
