Not sure what I think just yet. Although I will say it kicks the crap out of new Pestilence (Van Drunen won). Riffing is OK but a little monotonous. Production is nice and powerful. The song structure is kind of weird, not sure how else to put it... maybe it would sit better with me if I listened to it a couple more times. On first listen it seemed like the entire second half, they just didn't know where the song was going any more. The best part to me is the bridge with those triplet rhythms on the cymbals (first kicks in around 0:35) - that's a nice funky twist on what is otherwise a pretty straight-forward death metal stomper.

Van Drunen sounds good here as he did on Hail of Bullets (and as he always does, basically). I hope Wannes does some singing on the album too. Those two would sound beastly singing together.

Awesome song, though the vocals could have been more brutal. Killer.

I don't care for the breakdown, but the first half of the song I think is really strong.

The song structure seems a bit disjointed on first listen (and to be fair, that might be a deliberate choice, given the song title!), but that's my only complaint -- this sure sounds like Asphyx to me! Fuckin' heavy stuff. Can't wait to see them live next week. Twisted Evil

I have the album and it's good if a little long. There some classic Asphyx riffs on there and the style of the album is atypical of their style. The production is clear but sufficiently heavy though not filthy enough in view of 'The Rack' and 'Last One On Earth'. It's a little too clean sounding I think.

I actually prefer the production on Crush the Cenotaph EP.
