★★★☆ Since I’m a graduate of the Steve DiGiorgio School Of Excess Bass, it’s almost impossible for me to not admire this album from Beyond Creation, especially with some of the songs being thinly-veiled excuses for fretless bass worship. And to be honest, those egregious moments are when the album falters the most. Thankfully, the rest of the album is chock full of amazing proggy technodeath virtuosity and unusual but addictive riffs and progressions. It’s a satisfying blend of Sadus meets Cynic at their respective bests.
