When I see something labeled as "Progressive Death Metal", I instantly think it'll be either somewhat interesting or a total borefest. TAO falls somewhere in between the two. On the plus side, there are some interesting moments here, and the quickest way to describe those would be to think of Enslaved from a couple of albums ago, but with a Death Metal leaning. On the other hand, unlike Enslaved, the stuff isn't exactly great and is highly repetitive. This is a 50 minutes that feels very long. It's rather monotonous overall, and the interesting parts are too few and far between. And no, guys, adding quiet atmospheric passages does not always make things diverse – those have to be well-placed and here they are not. Crushing Sun have the playing abilities, but they really need to start writing interesting songs.
