it's like golden age metallica on acid. if this release doesn't earn arsis some street cred, i don't know what it would take. this is epic, dynamic and metal
Favorite track: A Diamond For Disease.
Featuring the 13-minute title track originally composed as a score for NYC's Ballet Deviare , A Diamond For Disease is an ultimate magnum opus of epic melodic death metal that explores layer upon layer of romantic lead guitar that effortlessly manages to swim and dart between spidery mazes of mutating rhythms that recall the very best of ...And Justice For All and Heartwork. This is by far the band's most advanced material to date as it was written from a standpoint of orchestral-like complexity, and as such, embraces a painstaking degree of detail in both harmony arrangement and melodic counterpoint.
