3 stars Post Technical Death Metal

Anata is one of my favorite technical/progressive death metal acts. It's a swedish death band, and you know Sweden. But the great surprise is the different sounding of Anata in comparison with other influential bands of the town, like Dismember/Carnage, Entombed/Nihilist, or even into the prog and tech vein like Opeth and Dan Swano projects. This debut is the weakest album in their catalogue. It's very different from the successors. It's brutal, technical, sometimes exaggerated, but with some kind of melodic riffs like... Do you know how to distinguish post-hardcore from hardcore or melodic hardcore? This is it.

It's a great album, but if you listen to it once, you will not get the whole thing, too many riffs per track, that kind of technical pissing songwriting. But years ago I was too much into death metal and had the chance to listen carefully to Anata whole discography. The aftermath is that Anata is one of the few "exaggerated technical" death metal bands that I still have some consideration.
