3 stars Warning: Atheist is a quite progressive band, but this albums is still maybe too much death metal for standar progressive's lovers. This album can be called progressive death metal, yes. But it's not the style of Opeth or Meshuggah. Is very much raw and classic death metal oriented. So I think "Piece of Time" is not indicated for everyone...

But if you are into death metal, I think you surely will like this album. Most of the songs have a very complex structure, vertiginous rythm changes and incredible instrumental skill. For all that, is a death metal less monotonous than other bands of the same era like Obituary or Bolt Thrower, and maybe for that "Piece of Time" is still fresh and pretty enjoyable today.

My favourite songs: Piece of Time (a slash in the face), Room With a View (with a great macabre feeling...), On the Slay (incredible drumming here)

Specially indicated for death metal's lovers...
