4 stars A dark, moody, artistic, and mature evolution of the band's bottom-heavy savagery. "From Within" oozes with memorable riffs and BIG sounds, with Liljeström's bass once again leading the assault while the band's duo-mellotrons add a tremendous amount of texture to the complex mix.

More so than "Nucleas", "From Within" showcases more variety and interesting compositions-- adding several slow and romantic songs into their trademark sound. Liljeström has more control over his voice, and the inclusion of the vibraphone adding the icing on the cake. There is a lot to enjoy here.

"From Within" is a great success and likely a better intrduction to the band than their first two intense albums; perfect for those seeking something heavy and beautiful.

Songwriting: 4 Instrumental Performances: 4 Lyrics/Vocals: 3 Style/Emotion/Replay: 4
