Rating: 9 Haven't listened to it all yet, but from what I have, sounds like the recording quality is chasms better than Empyrean.

Still sounds as epic as ever though

Wow! Excellent Album, Better than Empyrean.

Yeah boy! Good album, I like it !

Rating: 10 Well, of course, in comparison with the previous album they've added much symphonic elements. And I'm not quite sure whether it has had good impact or not. But in my opinion every album released by this band has got unique sound and atmosphere. Anyway, one of the greatest albums of 2014!!!

Rating: 9 Never liked Mechina. But this one kicks ass. Terrea and, especially, Tartarus are brilliant. And those industrial sounds are just in right place and time.

Rating: 8 This just blew my mind WOW! One Listen, Instantly Favorite

  While I agree that there are a few very enjoyable moments I must say that the vocals are just annooooying as hell. Fought my way through it once for the sake of giving it a chance and satisfy my curiosity but will probably not listen to this ever again.

Rating: 7 Great album but this will never make it to a list if they don't fix the problem, which is that it links the boxset instead.

Rating: 7 VERY nice!

Rating: 8 Better production than Empyrean, but I'm not too fond of the vocals either. Will have to give this a few more spins before I know what to think of it.

Rating: 8 Great stuff, I really enjoyed listening to this. I like the symphonic elements a lot. I don't really hear the Industrial elements to be honest though. To me this sounds totally like symphonic death metal.

hey you just made me ambivalent about checking this album by this statement.

Well, it's very good stuff but I just didn't really hear the industrial elements that are supposedly in this album. I haven't heard much industrial music, but I'm pretty sure I could recognize it when I hear it.

Yeah I know. I just happen to be more interested in industrial metal rather than symphonic metal.

  Wow, this is heads and shoulders above its predecessor. Imposing.
R'Vannith - 13.02.2014 at 15:33  
Rating: 8 To say that this time they've solidified their sound with a quality and cohesive mix would be a understatement. Better balanced I think. There are industrial components like the previous one had, although these might be more accurately described as "cyber," to be more specific. Everything seems to gel well here, to my ears.

Two listens in and I'd agree it's a significant improvement over Empyrean.

Rating: 10 Well, it's more symphonic death than industrial death (i barely find the industrial influences). The album has a weak start and a very good middle. The end is not too bad. I'm sure it will get better after i give it more listens!

I dislike the cleaner vocals, though the rest/music is fucking awesome! Anyone know if there is an instrumental version?
ScnD361 - 02.12.2014 at 05:41  
  The vocals!! :c
Darkside Momo - 07.01.2015 at 01:32  
  They got a level up with that one for sure (even if more symph and no indus). Still, those clean vocals bother me, as always.
flightoficarus - 03.02.2015 at 00:12  
  Just one more person here complaining about the vocals. Both harsh and clean are pretty bad, and the lyrics...such a shame given the epic scale of the music. As a result, I'm not even going to rat ethis because the disparity is just too large.
Mr. Doctor - 04.02.2015 at 00:21  
  The vocals are really terrible. The music was okay but still very meh if you ask me.
