As an avid fan of techno as well as metal/hardcore, i must say that this album brings the best of both worlds. Intelligent samples, smashing grooves, and punishing lyrics make this album thoroughly enjoyable. The musicianship is top-notch (in comparison to some of today’s othe metal acts). The guitarist, while choosing to eschew solos, does a superb job in laying down an unforgettable anthem. The bassist and drummer add the best grooves lines of any hardcore band i have ever heard. Lastly the vocalist tries, and succeeds, in blending an agressive and heavy verse with a startling original and unique chorus. A must have album for any true metal enthusiast.
