How confident do you have to be in your ability to open up your debut album with a 25 minute long tech death/thrash metal song?

If you digged Blood Incantation's latest you might also enjoy this album too. Musically similar however this one has a special Voivod touch added.

The first track is immense both in size and quality.

exactly. I think the tendency will be to compare to to BI simply because of the first track's length. I agree with you though, this has as much old-school Voivod in it as it does BI (probably more, just "death metal-ized")

Also, I have a feeling this will end up being one of the best 'most overlooked' albums of the year

Solid debut but lacks in memorable moments, quickly forgotten.

Even it's sound from a production standpoint especially for dm is a dime-a-dozen Bandcamp weak pile in the average 8's bin.

I hear some Vektor influences yet I don't find any thrash metal in the album. All I hear is good quality death metal. But the songs do tend to get a bit boring after a few listens.
