With three albums already out I was suprised I'd never heard this band before. Right out of the gate "Sunrise Defloration" peaked my interest as shades of Morbid Angel, Immolation and Marduk came swirling out of my speakers with extreme malice. If you're looking for all-out blasting brutality there really isn't any way you can go wrong with this disc. By track 4 I was beginning to think this hyper-speed style was all this band had in the tank but then the mighty "Adonai Made Excrement" reared it's head. With it's murky, slowed down mid-section and some Morbid style soloing, these guys showed they were capable of mixing it up even if just a little bit.
I was hoping they'd contiune to explore this type of playing but the next two tunes were back to the basics. Not at all bad, but nothing that took the album to the next level. That all changes with the closing track "Sunset Detonation" as the quirky, tremolo picking blistered my ears and the band's potential shone through with the epic feel of this beast of a tune. Does it save the album as a whole? Probably not, but these hints of extreme greatness makes it well worth looking into and a band to watch in the future. If these guys decide to write a slightly more diverse album they could make huge waves in the Death Metal ocean.
