3 stars Psycroptic most certainly turned the screws on the listeners on this album.

Thundering fast drumming and bass, crushing guitars and the usual death grunts heralds the return of this Australian band. Everything dressed up in a good sound and with an excellent artwork.

For me, it still sounds like Psycroptic is a work in progress on this, their second album. There is still a lot of three-state death metal in their sound and not that much technical death metal. OK, the music they play is still fiendish difficult to play though. But I had expected a lot more uber-tech death metal. This album is also chemical bereft of some great tunes and hooks. But this is still a good death metal album.

Good, but not great death metal from an album I expected to be a great slab of putrifying meat.

3 stars
