I want that new album, can't wait to hear it! Its like almost 4 years ago they released anything new now.. And I sure do hope there is no new vocalist, I love Simon's grunting!

Can't fucking wait! Both their first two albums have such a dark and armageddon-esque doomsday atmosphere to them it's incredible.

Leaked. Well it is definitely better than the last one, but not as good as debut. So far I am enjoying it a lot.

I really like this album. Nice riffs and that erie feeling that can be felt when listening to Hypocricy. They have their own sound/style.

Hmm I have mixed feelings. Nothing feels memorable yet and it didn't click immediately on the first listen like with their previous two albums. I will listen to it a bit longer and then rate it. But it's somehow stale for now.

This is actually a really good surprise. Loved their debut but they kinda bored me on "The Cancer Empire" but theyve really grown quite a lot from then to this new release. The vocals for one seem more menacing and more mature, and the music still has those little flourishes of Hypocrisy but not in a rip-off kinda way so I love that. Also get a bit of a Dark Fortress vibe in some of the songs so its a nice mesh of melodic death/black in this release - very impressive.

YEEEESS, need to get my greedy hands on this. I've heard people bashing this band before but for what reasons exactly I'm not sure. Their last album was incredible, catchy, melodic and just the right kiss of brutality. I'm glad to see that this album is getting good responses so far, hopefully that means I'll be as satisfied with this one as I was the last

It's definitely better than 'TCE' and not for away from being as good as their debut.

I tried to like it as much as the previous two albums but I can't. It hurts me to state this, but this album is bland, dull and boring. Terribly disappointed.

This album is extremely 'samey' and bores me beyond belief.

A bit better than the last one, but the "been there done that"-feeling is unshakable. "A Lullaby to those Still Alive" had a a seriously infective chorus though. Awesome song!

I don't really like melodeath lately (with a few exceptions) and Zonaria never really struck me with their music before so it came to me as a total surprise that I enjoyed this album. It contains harshness and melody in proportions that are just right for me. If only this album was more varied I'd give it a higher rating.
