I used to believe that consequently to the departure of the Hoffman brothers, DEICIDE shall loose some of its technicity and power, but once again Glen Benton proves that he is the sole and real symbol of the American band. This album isn't more explosive than "Legion" (the most relevant release in the band's history), but it is certainly better processed, especially from the structural point of view. Well, don't imagine there is maximum complexity! It is only Death Metal, extremely rapid and brutal, with a specific American Death Metal vocal, showing an approach rooted in the music of the bands that have passed through the Tampa/Florida studios: DEATH, CANNIBAL CORPSE, OBITUARY... The technical line is emphasized by the guitars' riffs, sounding incredibly good, including some interesting solos unusual for this extreme style. When you say DEICIDE, it means solely Satanic Death Metal. I find it hard to say if this very album is better than the previous ones, but I can state that it is a quality release, persisting into proving that after 15 years of activity true Death Metal can be performed, even though novelty is absent. One more thing: this Benton guy is savage as ever! Well, now I've joined true deathers with full resonance! Go for it!
