Pyrophoric substances are metals that spontaneously ignite when exposed to air. In that case it would be best to handle the latest release from Mencea with caution as it is not only prone to ignition but has a particularly nasty progressive death bite.

Rating: 7 This isn't too shabby actually. Kinda Scarve meets Gojira-ish at many points.

Rating: 4 For me it was a stupifying experience. A few highlights here and there saved this daily bus drive from being thrown out to the nearest dump yard.

This stuff is pretty straight up, I find it hard to believe anyone would find it offensively bad.

Yes, it's not bad, but it isn't interesting. From the album aspect, the problem of not having inspirating sections during the straight up bombing, is eating up this record's energy from the very inside.

That sounds a little overly dramatic to me. The rhythm sections are no doubt a little on the lacking side but it has a decent atmosphere and some nice groove that more than makes up for it.

The atmosphere is pretty clinical to me, though sometimes it works. And what comes to the groove thing, the problem is that it's too continuous and lacks, for instance, great tempo change + guitar riff -combinations. But yeah, it's listenable while having a daily bus drive.

Sincerely
Drama Dude

Rating: 8 Though it sounds similar to Gojira I find myself liking this more than L'Enfant Sauvage.

Rating: 7 This is FAR more enjoyable than the last Gojira.

  ^ That.

Rating: 7 Briefing through a few tracks, the tone and atmosphere is comparable to a slightly more straightforward Bloodbath (namely Peter's vocals on Nightmare). While it's more enticing than Gojira's latest, I don't think the similarities are too prominent.

Edit: Bloodbath? What was I smoking...
