When i first heard this cd i thought it sounded like a more nu-metally Nile, but after listening to more, selecting the best tracks and just listening to them for a while, this CD is really good. Tracks 2,5,11, and 12 are the best, 3's pretty good, i dont know what everyone's talking about in 'as above so below', that might as well be on the radios everywhere in my opinion, its slow without being ridiculously heavy like slow death should be, but track 2, just kicks ass. Undeniably. So this cd crosses a wide span of good and bad, the good is really good, and the bad, (first riff of track 1 and track 4) gets pretty stupid. But then again, i did give it 5 stars, so its worth it. Its something like maybe deicide, gorgoroth's twilight of the idols, and nile with less attitude, to summarize, its good.
