3 stars If you are looking to get into this band do not start here. It is a average offering and not on par with their first two albums at all. There is just way to much boring, mediocre, deathcore/metalcore like moments and not enough more interesting parts that show better songwriting ability. They have talent, but it does not shine through as much in this album as with previous ones. The riffs for the most part, are pretty generic, and the drums are not as exciting as they could be. They are some very good moments however. The Requiem Aeternam trilogy are some of the better songs on here, as is the opener, even if it is nothing new to a lot metal that have a orchestral or symphonic side. Invisible Creature is also a really cool interlude type piece, that does surprise a bit, but does not sound awkward, which is hard to do for some bands that use instruments from other cultures and genres.

Good, but not the best. Average.

Sheavy | 3/5 |
