The thing that stood out the most for me on this release was the amazing vocal work of Hernan Hermida on every track. It has been mentioned by other reviewers, but it really is staggering how many styles of screams Hermida brings to the table. So many heavy metal vocalists only drone on in one style of screaming from track to track and as you switch between songs, it all starts to blend together. But Hermida is able to conjure up some of the most intense and suitable screams in every situation. This is some of the best vocal work I have heard in years from a metal frontman.
Besides the vocals, this album is very good overall. For me, it seems to have taken a significant “hardcore” turn from their last release, but they do it in such a way that it enhances the music instead of just turning everything into one big breakdown. The guitar work is really intricate and beautiful.
I recommend this CD to anyone who appreciates good heavy metal, but especially to any aspiring heavy metal vocalists.
