Rated 3.6/5 (72%) (5 Votes)

This is an album with some good riffing, too much repetition, and bad vocals. The tremolo riffing of the guitars is melodic and tasty, creating a sound right out of the gate that is more than listenable, however every riff on here gets repeated endlessly to create the 10+ minute songs, which are not long for any genuine compositional reason, they are just long for the sake of it. By halfway through any given track you are more than ready for it to stop, as it has just been recycling the same licks for the whole time. All these songs sound highly similar, and there's not much variation from one track to another - they are all even in the same key. Vocals are another weak point, as they just sound like a guy in the next room yelling at his wife over the phone. There's no character, no urgency, and the recording is so distant and muffled you can't possibly make out anything. A band that takes a solid foundation and builds nothing with it.
