3 stars Well first of all, Ever-Arch-][-Tech-Ture is actually progressive symphonic black death metal, so not everyone will like this. Okay, let's start with the 1st song, "Incognation" starts good, but after a minute it becomes harder, with progressive/symphonic sounds, you have to like death metal to like this song, not the best one on the album. The 2nd song, "Demons Shelter Within" is better then the first one, it's a little bit more progressive but still very metal like also a great piano tune at the 3 minute point. The 3rd song, "Ashes To Flesh" is one of the best songs on the album imo, perfect combination between progressive/symphonic and death metal. There is also some great singing in this song. I think most of you will like this song. The 4th song, "A Nation In Atrophy" is again a lot harder, with some good parts, but this one is almost completely Death Metal, not that good. The 5th song, "The Midnight Grotesque" starts with a piano, and then some guitars with some background singing like this "ahahahahahah" or something like that :), pretty hard song, but a good one, the background singing makes it good. The 6th song, "Prophet Set To Witness" is again a death metal song. The 7th song, "Ever-Arch-I-Tech-Ture" is a great song, with a lot of symphonic sounds. The 8th song, "Threnody For An Endling" is written by Daniel Gildenl÷w from PAIN OF SALVATION, he is also the vocals on this song, good song. The 9th song, "Ravager" is again purely death metal, with some nice keyboard sounds. The 10th song, "Of Genesis And Apocalypse" is the longest song on the album, 8 minutes, and it's a great mix of death metal with progressive and symphonic sounds. The 11th song, "Forboding" is a short song, but a very good one, very progressive and nice to hear. The 12th song, "Shackles Cross" isn't that good, very hard, not progressive at all. The 13th song, "The Omniscient" is the best song on the album, especially the part where he is singing "save me, I'm falling" this song you all need to have.

I'll give this album a 7.5/10 because I can listen to death metal too. It's a good album, but definitely not essential.

Best songs on the album: The Omniscient, Ashes To Flesh, Ever-Arch-I-Tech-Ture, Threnody For An Endling and Forboding
