5 stars And here we thought we'd have to wait about a century to hear music made by robots. So, yeah, this is pretty much the logical conclusion of tech death: just about emotionless, highly complex, blazingly fast, and might be called math death by some. And loud, of course. For what it is it's excellent, with very skilled musicians playing tech to the fullest, with plenty of new ideas. Behold... The Arctopus does not rest on any laurel here. Listening to this album is an enjoyable experience, with much to savour in ~36 minutes - tech is fast, after all. For me, the best part, even after all that, is the end of "Of Cursed Womb", where after a beat of silence the guitarist lets out one final note, rather humourously. I did say ALMOST emotionless.
