Formed in Kansas in 1997, building up a reputation as one of the leading, most intense and brutal technical death metal forces to be reckoned with.
"A culmination of 15 years of technical death metal brutality that transcends definition" - states the band. And continues: "From light speed to absolute zero, it is a journey to the farthest reaches of the universe, to the darkest nether of the mind".

This new album features the recording debut of vocalist Jason Keyser (ex-Skinless).

Brutal perfection, each song delivered with agression and superb musicianship.
We get a nice break with 'Continuum' which is a little Guitar solo with some harmonic synth playing backing it up then its back to the metal!

But wait another chance to catch our breaths with 'Obsolescence'? ahh wait half way through the drummer lets loose an amazing performance of pedal power!

Then the last few tracks do what you would expect!

This is bordering on a masterclass of how to do this Technical Death Metal music, if you like this genre then this is the one to get.

Rating 9/10
For fans of: Nile, Cryptopsy, Fleshgod Apocalypse, Hate Eternal, Decapitated
