I'm not a huge fan of this album. It sounds WAY too much like their last one, and they're not really bringing anything new to the table. Their use of harmonics also gets kind of annoying after a while. Also, this CD is way too short to be considered a full-length album.

The riff at 2:12 in 'Dark Passenger' sounds way too close to a riff in 'Perpetual Black Second' by Meshuggah.

Also, what's with the 4 different album colours? I wouldn't buy this album once, let alone 4 times.

Haven't heard this yet, only a few demo tracks on their myspace page, but based on those i wasn't impressed either. Almost sounded like they were trying too hard to differ their sound from the last album, and ended up making a shitty album in the process.

Their tag line for the albums is "Collect them all now!" Yeah right, i won't even collect the jpegs online.

I was a tad bit disappointed with this album as well. I was expecting more.

I thought the first couple of tracks killed it, then it got stale. I was pretty stoked to listen to these guys cause Michael Keene was producing and I love the faceless first album Akeldema.
