★★☆☆ This sure is an impressive half-hour of Gorguts-style technodeath, with PTH-style production. Inventive, impossible to predict, and listen to that fretless bass! But it’s impossible to shake the feeling that the entire record is just being played at 1.5x speed, and that gets distracting after a while. That’s nowhere more apparent than with the drums, which most definitely sound like you just blew out your right tire while driving 70mph down the highway. Still, the ear candy makes this album worth the listen.
