This CD is as the other two reviews say, but in a way, totally different. Yes it sounds alot like other metal bands, but its milotic style, and its intricate timeing in tempo, and synthesizer bring delightfull surprises to those who are tired of hearding all the same type of song construction. Without the synth, this CD would be nothing special. Its "hardcore tough-guy" break out break downs are also a surprise, seeing how hardcore punk has little relation to heavy death metal growls. I give them points for combining to different typs of music into one successfully! Its blast beats are more than normal, but its slow consistand double bass does not always cordinate with the blast beats, which is more than strange. It has a good strong epic feel aswell!
