Tech/Extreme Prog Metal

From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

5 stars One of the best progressive death metal albums ever. Here you have musicians using technicality to an advantage, not necessarily saturating their music with it, but letting it ebb and flow through the compositions. This is one of the few more "brutal" death metal acts that are at the same time very progressive. It is progressive because of the beautiful and unique textures rarely found (if ever) in extreme metal, thanks to both the use of the e-bow on the guitars, operatic choruses and vocals, and entrancing acoustic guitar passages. And every single instrument shines on this album, including not only the guitars, but the insanely talented and sometimes frenetic bass playing, more than solid drumming performances, and the afore-mentioned vocals which are provided by both the varied male and female kinds.

Anyone interested in quality extreme metal or progressive metal should buy this album. No question.
