The Embodiment of Darkness and Light

Rated 3.75/5 (75%) (8 Votes)

Well, this is better than I thought at first listen, but still not good. Tech Death generally falls into two categories: brutal high-speed assaults like Decrepit Birth or Origin, and diddly-weedly-diddly stuff that wants to be Cynic or Atheist. This band pretty obviously fits in category two. There are some good riffs and bits buried in this, but it is so overloaded with masturbation and stop-and-go song-jerking that it always strangles whatever momentum it manages to build up. The jazz inflections are happily minimal, but this album remains an almost entirely intellectual exercise, with no emotional involvement at all. Complex, shallow, and heartless.
