This is kind of excruciating. World Under Blood are late on the Melodic Death Metal bandwagon and they're not really good at it. Interesting bits and pieces are lost in one mess of songwriting. Hey guys, variety on an album doesn't mean that you should make each song jump left and right without any sense of direction. Whether it's the music or the vocals, this goes nowhere and everywhere. They even throw in the "In Flames when they started changing direction" mix of clean and semi-growled vocals. The vocals aren't bad; it's just the switch between styles that often makes no sense within a song.

Frankly, I'd be less harsh on these guys if they had just released a clone of some good Melodic Death album from the late 90s. Surely Nuclear Blast had better bands knocking at their doors, so I don't know what the hell is up with this. In the meantime, bands producing good music are stuck on small unknown labels with no distribution. I've already spent too much time on this one.
