4 stars Improved songwriting with already very capable playing skills. Mathcore influences are still very present but veer more towards death-metal. A few instrumentals on the album prove that vocals are just one of the band's weapon. Compositions are getting longer and logically more varied.

"All Bodies" has a good melody and memorable guitar riff. "Selkies..." starts like a Dream-Theater spin-off, heavy and guitar-drums dominant. However, it also shows perfectly clean harmonized vocals and jazz-groove intermezzo. It is one of the highlights on this album as it merges different music styles in a fluid way. "The primer" has a great black-metal touch to metalcore singing and a complex long riff sequence.
