I can hardly believe that an album so brutal and technical can carry so much melody. The backing riffs and some excellent bass work are almost constantly creating relatively simple hooks and patterns that make the songs easy to follow, while the drums and the lead guitars and the fantastic vocal performance swirl and crash around you. With clear black metal influence, a striking and consistent atmosphere, and enough time signature hopping and pace transitions to twist your face off, this is how I've always wanted my death metal to sound. I get it now. They called themselves Artificial Brain because that's what you need after they explode yours.
