How many death metal bands can boast about a career of over 35 years and 11 full lengths with no real misfires? Immolation can, but they don’t seem particularly content. They can still get heavier.

Ok the artwork is nice and the productions seems to be improved over Atonement.

Also it's good to see Satanic Immolation return.

This is pretty good! I’m not huge on the vocals but for a band that’s been around for 30+ years, this is a solid release.

An excellent release. Saving a genre a lot of us cut our teeth on in the 90s, proving that old school death metal doesn't all have to sound generic.

An excellent album from Immolation as always. Sad seeing it getting voted 6 and below, seems to be mostly from Shadow of intent and Cult of Luna listeners. Lol

The drums deserve a special mention here, insane amount of details and twists. Shalaty makes this album shine. Respect.

How can a band's eleventh album be so crushing? Sounds like a blast from the past.

I've learned that some people are haters. They've learned that when they want to tank a highly-rated album on Metalstorm, giving it 1, 2, or 3 causes too much attention, so they can undercut it and fly under the radar by giving it something like a 4, 5, or 6.

Finally I gave this a listen...
I was hooked after that great "Noose of Thorns" riff - after that there was no turning back

The musicianship on "Derelict Of Spirit" is absolutely incredible!

Moderately strong material, magnified to greatness by the band’s technical skill and perfect production. “Derelict Of Spirit” and "When Halos Burn" are the standout tracks in my ears, though there’s not a weak song here. One of the few albums from the 2022 top albums list that didn’t disappoint me.
