Having heard the name Behold…The Arctopus on and off for a few months I decided to start tracking them down to have a listen. Eventually I find myself at an FYE, I scanned this at a preview station, and WOW. Bombardment of sound and melody. This band is fantastic, and their new album amazed me greatly. So much complexity and power. I highly recommend this album and disregard any certain “1 star ratings” which speak of a lack of melody. foolish, next they’ll want breakdowns. Cheers!
