This is one of Deicide’s best releases. The muscianship is the best out of any of their previous works. Seriously the solos pretty much shred throughout, without taking away from Deicide’s brutality. The music just kills on this. Very fast and heavy. Glen’s voice is a little deeper and he does the high pitch stuff, it’s just not as upfront/annoying as it was on Scars of the Crucifix. As a whole the cd sounds alot meaner and mature than the past. Owen and Santorella (sp), really did inject this band with the needed fire that had been lacking, even though SOTC was a great cd. I really like the guitar sound on this, has a razor sound to it, similiar to Once Upon the Cross, in terms of the guitar sound. Anyway if you like Deicide you will no doubt appreciate this. Brutal and refreshed!!
