Let me start off by saying that this album is a huge step up from the bands debut release, Crucify. Kill. Rot. and will keep your attention from start to finish. The Resting Sonata is 100x more technical than anything the band has ever released and is more punishing too. But the thing that most sets this album apart from the rest (in a bad way) is the enormous amount of breakdowns. Every song has a breakdown. Some are more catchy than others, and some sound like they were just created so there could be some fill in the song. Don’t let that aspect stray you away from buying this. If you are a fan of death metal, progressive metal, speed metal, hardcore, or technical metal, this CD incorporates it all. Buy it and prepare for a brutal beatdown.
