Oh goddamn I am beyond jealous. This album has it all, catchy riffs, epic orchestral elements, fantastic production, impressive instrument skills on all parts, fun upbeat sections, emotional more drawn out sections. I can't stop listening to it.

Does anyone think "Phlebotomized " is a completely inappropriate name to have under this album? It conjures up goregrind and brutal death imagery, which this record is a thousand miles from.

totally agreed. Back in the day when I got the demo to review for Meltdown my first reaction was "oh fuck, a grindcore band" based on the band name and logo. Of course no images of brutal death passed my mind because there was no brutal death around at the time, thanks God

"Phlebotomized will reunite and play on the stonehenge festival

Finally gave it a full proper listen. Holy shit what an album. Ahead of its time and still unique to this very day.
More people should listen to it. There's so much to like.
