Blackened death is one of my favorite genres, and the first time I heard this I thought I’d found the quintessential blackened death sound. I was a little overexcited, perhaps, but this is definitely going to be in the top 5 releases of the year for the genre. Just a sick album on all levels. Killer drummer.
Favorite track: Below Deck.
Saw these guys in concert for the first time and was immediately addicted. The vocals are damn-near perfect, and a lead singer also being the guitarist is very impressive, especially for this genre. Do yourself a favor and check these guys out.

Blackened Death album with lots of well integrated Prog and Tech elements. Usually I'm not too deep into more extreme metal, but on this record every song is memorable and - while being brutal - also catchy, accessible and simply fun. Spectacular! FlashMuc
