The band features aside from Erik, J.J. Hrubovcak on bass and Chason Westmoreland on drums. There were some tragedy that occurred with the band some years ago, Jared Anderson wanted to rejoin but sadly passed away in 2006. Erik remained positive in recruiting new members for this recording. The music is just chaotic and the intensity is overwhelming. He didn’t lose his focus here, he’s right on accurate.
The lyrical concepts of the band remain grim, touching on variously different atrocities of man. It fits well into this album and does it justice. There was somewhat of a moderate gap between releases. But this band wants to continue to annihilate your eardrums with their uncompromising death metal. There simply is no stopping Erik from making more and more albums. He’s considered to be one of the top 20 death metal guitarists of all time and his band the top 8 death metal bands of the decade!
Erik doesn’t execute much lead guitar work on this release. It’s focus is mainly on the rhythms and what was created. Track after track you hear a lot of speed picking and guitar chords in an upheaval frenzy. They just went nuts on here, but every track counted. There were no songs on here that were boring. They were filled with dynamite. The production was top notch and they recorded this one in Florida on Season of Mist records. If I had to say in a few words what this album concept is I’d say “pure noise terror” and leave it at that.
