3 stars I sometimes wonder if the band's singer wants us to hate him. Oh well. But, in spite of the continued suckitude (as that is the technical term) of the vocals, the omega juggernaut actually feels like a juggernaut at times. I'm finding some redeeming value here for once, with the whole chain of "The Bad Thing/Priestess/Graveless/The Hell Below" actually sounding alright. Since my ears don't hate me for saying that, it must be true. And certainly the band's actually brought out some proper and well enough done metal for once. Other than that, the complaints that can be leveled at "Alpha" carry over. Especially, yet again, those *bleepity-bleep* vocals, and I will still hold fast to the conclusion that the whole "Juggernaut" project is hardly prog or tech. It's like they saved the best for last, yet they didn't have enough of it. Especially with the lazy and particularly terrible "Reprise", the worst track here and almost as bad as "Alpha"'s title cut. In the end, what shows this album's redeeming value is that I am actually considering getting this at the local record shoppe, all the while stealing angry death glares at its companion. The vocals make this a 2.5, but here I can only round up.
