Pretty good album, with plenty of aggression and chaos. It's slightly disjointed, given that there are both long (Closing track 'Sun dies, blood moon') and extremely short (The one-two punch of 'Afterhour animals' and 'The lash whistled like a singing wind') songs, but the musicianship here is solid enough to keep the album going on a consistent basis. Although I personally think the opener 'Hive minds' is the most boring song on the album (To me it just drags on for far too long), the other nine are more than enough to make up for it. The title track itself is brilliantly written, gradual and tense but with an ambitious finish that proves extremely worthwhile to listen to, and 'Sword in mouth, fire eyes' is strangely melodic, often eschewing the band's usual aggressive front but always dependant on the controlled rhythm section and Cory Brandan's cleaner vocal style. Certainly one of the better Metalcore albums of 2013.

Surprised at some of the low ratings. It's not as much of a step forward as Meridional, but it's still leaps and bounds above others in the genre. Some very interesting riffs happening.
