This is a brooding, bruising maelstrom of an album. Lean , powerful and infinitely inventive each play of this rewards the listener with a greater depth inwards towards the centre of something very special indeed. Razor sharp riffs twist and spin like shrapnel whilst emotive vocals barked, sang, and shouted blast through the songs. Dense and balanced the weave of this record is perfect, it ideas are realised beautifully and executed with precision and skill. This is hands down the finest metal album I’ve heard in years. Buy it. Let it steamroller over you and press play again. Absolute magic of the darkest kind.
