I'm not familiar with Thine Eyes Bleed's first album, but this second one is pretty good overall after, letting it grow on me. What we have here is some modern Thrash mixed with a good dose of Death Metal, with a good dose of melody bringing it all together. The vocals style is halfway between your typical Death Metal growls and Melodic Death Metal (Gothenburg style), which suits the music well. There are also a couple of places where a more clean vocal style is used, and it's hit or miss depending on the song. Fine thrashy riffs mix with a Death Metal-ish rythms and drums and the recipe mostly works, although I found a few passages sounded a little bit off - you know, when you're listening to an album and all of a sudden something makes your teeth cringe for a few seconds? That's the feeling. Not too much of that, thankfully, but hard to ignore. Lots of good guitar riffs here, quite catchy at times but heavy enough to keep the kiddies at bay. The sound could be more raw, as I found it a little overpolished for the genre - let's file that one under personal preference. If you like modern Death/Thrash à la Demiricous, then you might just dig this.
