2 stars I love Atheist. They are one of my top groups of any genre. That said, I just do not think Atheist added to their legacy with this one. I do not mind a band developing, as long as they retain their identity. I think Atheist now sounds like standard mechanical tech-death, perhaps because they lost tasteful lead guitarist Rand Burkey and long-time associate Tony Choy on bass. They were as instrumental as any in developing the tech/prog death metal genre, but tnow they sound like a lesser rip-off of who they once were. This is still worth checking out for fans of tech death, because Atheist is still competent in the genre.
