Staff review by

It's not because he's a ginger that I don't like Dave Mustaine. At least, I don't think it is. Not per se. It's because of stuff like refusing to play on the same bill as a band called Rotting Christ that I think he's a bit of a fuck. It's one thing to do or not do something out of principle, that's respectable, it's another thing to be a bit of a puritanical fuck about it.

Aren't all reviews a representation of personal bias?

That was the joke.

Rating: 7 Some really great riffs going on here, as always with this band. Though I feel as though the song structures took a dive and it gets too atmospheric at times. Too much chanting and ritualistic-sounding stuff going on here for its own good. Give me the RIFFS on the next one boys...

Rating: 9 It loses a bit of steam after the amazing In Yumen/Xibalba, but by Kata Ton Daimona it's picked up again. All in all an excellent, solid album that makes me love the new, less black metal approach that Rotting Christ have been taking for the past few albums. Really atmospheric too, which is something I love.
