5 stars Catch Thirtythree is their best album, and this is their best song. One of the most complex progressive metal (yes, progressive, don't label something more complex than 95% of the music in this site as something else, it sounds ridiculous) ever made in history, and no: This is not an exaggeration, go listen it yourself.

I is a completely randomized polyrhythm ocean that drowns you with countless riffs and complex structures that barely anyone could possible play [not even the band itself can play it live (although they probably can, but it would take them some time to learn every polyrhythm present in the song)!], and that achievement by itself makes me give it five stars.

This is a way too complex song to review but basically it's like if you compressed the entire Catch Thirtythree album (which is already amazing) into just twenty minutes. Like I said before, it's filled with hundreds of polyrhythms, riffs, growling... An all-around frenzy of the main Death Metal properties combined with sheer complexity. A must have for people that enjoy death/tech/progressive metal.

Five stars!
