I'm a big lover of death metal however sometimes it can all start sounding the same. These guys are a bit different. This release is a death metal release with I guess you could call ambient or psychedelic overtones which makes it pretty unique. The guitar work is absolutely phenomenal and sometimes even sounds like they're using synthesizers. The music is atmospheric at times but still has an underlying aggression and brutality to it. It's definitely not mellow by any means. And amazingly enough it's created by a duo instead of four or five guys. I think their musical compositions are very innovative and intricate without sounding too technical. All in all, I think this is a body of work that people really need to check out.
