Cutesy spelling of their name aside, this is a pretty fucking brutal album from this Swedish band. Rather than traditionalist SWDM this is rather a blistering, somewhat technical affair that owes more to a US sound than the more melodic Scandinavian sound. This is not as dense and proggish as stuff like Origin or Decrepit Birth, but the intensity is kept at a high level, with almost nonstop hammering drums and a whirlwind of riffs. The vocals are washed through a bunch of effects, but I have certainly heard worse abuses. If you favor intense Death Metal in line with Behemoth's late works, then check this out.
