2 stars The debut album from these Australian masters of tech death metal.

The death metal scene in Australia has always lived their own life with a very brutal sound. Sadistic Execution is the prime example. The bands down under has taken the US sound a couple of steps further towards an all out brutality sound.

Psycroptic is among those although this album is not that brutal. It is mired in the tri-state sound which was developed by Suffocation and Immolation back in 1989-90. That's where we find this album. It is not particular technical. It is just brutal death metal with some melodic parts.

I personally quite like this album. It's sound is not the best though and the death metal here is a bit generic. But this is a decent debut album which set the band up for greater things. It is not the first album those who want to check up this band should buy though.

A decent album, nevertheless.

2.5 stars
