I found this to be better than serenity in fire, shadows and dust, and the more popular Kataklyms releases. Every song on here is quality, blasting, melodic death metal. I don't know why this album isn't more popular. Every song is good. The vocals go from brutal grind shouts, to growls, to black metal-esque screeches. The drums(though lacking interesting fills) are constantly blasting perfectly along with the fiery guitar rhythms, crunchy break downs, and occasional melodic riffs and solos. This is a very well rounded death metal album. All fans of extreme music should give it a spin.
After the hardcore flavored VICTIMS OF OUR FALLEN WORLD, KATAKLYSM has returned to their death metal roots. For fans who long for some old skool NORTHERN HYPERBLAST, this is exactly what you get from the get go. From the opening blast of 1999:6661 you get the sense that KATAKLYSM mean business (Older fans like myself will find themselves smiling after the openig barrage). The drumming is absolutly brilliant, the riffs are equally impressive and all songs are all set on kill. Highlights of this album include: 1)Killer production. One of the best sounding death metal albums I have heard in a long time. 2)Their song writing is more focused. 3)Experimenting more with melodies. Check out THE RENAISSANCE. Great balance of melody and brutality Overall an outstanding return to form. Definately one of the years best for me.
This album clicked with me the very first time I listened to it. All the aspects of this band just gel together. I don't want to drag this review on and on, so I'm just gonna summarize why this is is a great album and a great band: 1.) The production. It's very clean and crisp sounding which is perfect for the style of music being played. 2.) The lyrics. They're intelligent and well thought out. 3.) The lead vocals. The background vocals are way to high pitched which bears a disturbing resemblance to Dani Filth's vocals, but these vocals are perfect. They're low, but not too low. 4.) The musicianship. It's fairly technical, but they don't try to show off. They're humble and that's an aspect I've always admired in Metal bands. Overall, this is a great extreme band and I just might pick up more of their releases. Definetly recommended.
