Well that's a guitar tone you don't hear that often in death metal.

The two available tracks sound fine but don't have me as hyped as I'd like to be for this.

Invoking evil from ancient civilizations while being emotional.

I like it quite a bit, particularly some of the more melodic inclinations they have, but I remember being more impressed by Dwell. Still, likely to be one of the stronger DM albums this year

Edit: Actually, the longer the closing track goes on the more impressed I am by it, definitely a strong closer to the record

^ Suffering Hour is one of the best new death metal bands out there. This is another great record, but not a better one than their debut, in my opinion. And "Dwell" is in a league of its own, it is unsurpassable. The last track on this album tries hard and it's a commendable effort but it does not succeed to achieve "Dwell"'s level of brilliance.

I regret preordering this. The guitar tone makes my eye twitch. May as well be nails on a chalkboard. Thought this was a safe bet after Dwell. Wrong.

I really thought this was going to be the album which put them in the same conversations as Blood Incantation and other top tier new DM bands but it's a bit disappointing.

Not as good as the debut and definitely not as good as Dwell.

It's better than a 5/10 though. ^^ That's just crazy talk.

Yeah what the fuck is up with that lead guitar. The guitar tone is heinous and every note is obnoxious vibrato.

Last album is much better.

I don't have any issues with the guitar tone at all.

This has grown on me rapidly actually, I was wrong to be disappointed. It's another great Suffering Hour album.

What I like the most in this album is the lead guitar tone! It makes me feel uncomfortable, almost scared something bad is about to happen to me, and that's what I love to feel in a black/death album. I would dare say it creates some Lovecraft madness feelings in me.

My thoughts exactly.
