The music is what’s the strongest here. A lot of tremolo picking and fast paced tempos with blast beating drums. This music goes well with Lord Worm. He’s the most appropriate Cryptopsy vocalist in my opinion. But it’s hard to follow what he bellows even with a lyric sheet in front of you!! I’d have to say I’m not into their lyrical topics really a little too vile and grotesque for me, but the music is what stole it for me. The leads are brilliant too. This album just does not let up.
All of the tracks on here I favor I don’t think there’s any on the list that I disliked. As I say, uncompromising unreal intensity of pure torture. This beats a lot of classics of other bands, I’d go far to say it’s about as good as Cannibal Corpse’s “Butchered At Birth” but better. The music and vocals are what stole it for me not to mention the guitar solos. They’re brilliant as well. Just the riffs are so catchy and heavy it’s simply awe inspiring. This one is their best one of all time.
Now that I’ve said all this regarding the music, is it enough for you to find it on YouTube and say “yeah, this kicks ass!”? I’d say buy the physical CD because you can play it on your boom box or car CD player or just on your computer. This album just never lets up. I would caution though about the lyrics, they’re pretty grotesque. I don’t think they’re really thought out well but it goes along with the music. I’d rather not know what Lord Worm is saying. But just enjoy the music!!
