Starting off with a riff that reminded me of something Celtic Frost might have written, the vocals range from an almost opera style falsetto/head voice (high pitch) scream to a sinister growl. With trashy, incredibly powerful riffs and interesting, skillful solos. The material of this album has not disappointed me. This is an all around power-house record.
The title track of this album (Track 3) begins with a soft ambient intro before the guitars and drums kick in, followed by soaring vocals. Towards the middle of the song the guitars start to do a harmony on a cool lead, my favorite part of the album. The drums over all tracks seem rather minimalist, but the vocals are the seller, as far as I'm concerned. I was very, impressed to see this kind of vocal performance on this album. The guitars are relentlessly aggressive and thrashy at some points, and at other parts can be sustained and light. I heard a lot of old school death metal influence in most of the riffs, and all the riffs in the album had a nice "catch" to them.
I have to say the album is very well mixed. Everything can be heard crystal clear, nothing fights to be above anything else, and overall I'd have to say this is a really good album and not one where you feel the urge to hit the "next track" button a couple seconds into each song. I'd recommend this to anyone who loves king diamond style vocals and thrashy, death metal style riffs.
