Certainly one of the best-sounding death metal albums to come down the pike in some time, the complex music contained is only aided by an absolutely superb production job. These Polish death metal veterans are more along the “death & roll” lines, and are just so tight and crystal clear that it’s simply mind-boggling. Not a weak song to be heard, from the face-shredding opener “Epitaph (For Humanity)” all the way through to the end with “The Revelation of Black Moses” (plus you get three bonus tracks to round out the record), a midpoint highlight being “The Code,” already considered by some to be a death metal classic. Mauser and Peter’s dual guitar attack is utterly phenomenal, the rhythm section of bassist Simon and drummer Doc couldn’t be any better.
The only thing that is a bit daunting at first are the odd vocals of Peter, whose voice does take some getting used to—very unique in the death metal realm, but they do grow on you. I feel I should be conservative with the rating, but I just know that this is one that you only grow more fond of as time goes on. Extremely recommended.
