1 stars The previous album had shown a band on the verge of a split. Completely different ideas on where to take their music had created a very inconsistent album. Dan Swan÷ left and was replaced by new singer Robert Karlsson. Although mr. Karlsson has a remarkable throat, the absence of Dan Swan÷ is really felt in the unremarkable song writing, a standard death metal fare that had been around for at least 10 years.

A small exception can be made for Uncontrol Me, which has a decent brutal groove but rips of Sepultura. Everything else comes straight out of the book of melodic death metal. I'm no specialist in that area, but I think I've heard enough of it to say this album is substandard and won't even please fans of the style. Formulaic and uninspired, 1 star.
