4 stars This album is much hailed in the underground Death Metal circles and rightfully so. It takes Brutal Death Metal and combines it with at times an almost Post Rock feel with the guitar harmonies and some almost Jazzy drumming during these parts. It is highly technical, but unfortunately, overall it grows tiresome and loses its appeal to me. The songs start to become almost unrecognisable and run together. Otherwise this is a great record that shows vast improvement over all other "Brutal Death Metal" out there, with some very good inclusion of sounds and instruments that I have never heard before in a setting as devastating as this genre can be. Their are snatches of Sitar here and there, and while Lykathea are normally just blasting away, they occasionally do let up, and there is talking parts, but they are unintellligible to me. The last song is a extremely nice way to end the album, I think, with some nice almost exotic sounds, with birds chirping, and it overall is very calming.

Something that people with an interest in Prog Metal should really invest some time into.

Sheavy | 4/5 |
