Staff review by
The phrase "Can't blame a man for trying" grabs a whole different meaning when Aborted uses it; this band just keeps trying to win their fans back, you can see them doing the best they can to make people forget about their issues and flaws, they miserably fail though, and add to the pile the fact that, after "Goremaggedon", they keep releasing boring records with dull songwriting and amateurish music.

I actually found myself really enjoying this album, despite it's deviation from their previous sound.

If not for being an Aborted album, I think this would have been received much better by anyone interested in melodic death metal. It's not groundbreaking or anything but it's nowhere near as bad as most people make it out to be.

Herz mentioning In Flames in his review is typically off the mark from him.

It's definitely a significant deviation from their initial brutal leanings, but that natural progression had been occurring for years already, so I'm not sure what led to so much shock upon its release. I also think this album features the band's most varied and dynamic songwriting, and you can tell they had a lot of fun recording it, which will always get bonus points from me.

Sounded like they weren't sure of where to take this one. Certain parts were brutal, but others felt like standard MeloDeath. So far this is their weakest.
