Well, I've listened to this album a few times through now and I have to say that I'm pretty pleased. One cool thing about this band is that their growler has an amazingly deep sound, but when their clean vocalist kicks in it mixes so well. You go from a very deep, heavy death metal sound to a lighter melodic death metal sound in an instant. I think it's really cool.

Now this album is the first I have downloaded from these guys, and it was because after throwing in a few random songs in youtube playlists, I really got into them. I'd have to say that I was very pleased with the album. It's a very heavy album, with a focus on groove rather than speed in most spots. The guitar player is very talented as well. The solos tend to be fairly short, but some of them are pretty wicked. One of the only problems I had with this particular album was that many of the songs sound similar, which isn't entirely a bad thing. There wasn't 1 song that stood out as a bad song to me, but at the same time there wasn't 1 song that stood out as better than the others. It's just a solid album.

Surprise all the vocals are the same guy. Christian ├lvestam is amazing, now he did quit after their 3rd album and they replaced him with two vocalists. But on the albums out now its all him.

oh please lord, let me have converted someone. this album kicks so much ass.

ok, heres where we go from here. now that you like the sound of Christian Alvestam, i would suggest going with their first album, Symmetric in Design. if i had to say it resembled any one type of music other than melo-death, i would say Black. it just has very little hints of it. Like a plate of food you crack fresh pepper over, Symmetric in Design has had that one small dusting of the black metal, thus making it very tasty.

Christian, if he wasnt a complete douche bag, would be my hero. this guy kicks so much ass. well done axe, glad you saw the light

oh, and plus rep

lol thanks Brute. And as I was telling VR earlier this morning, black metal-esque sounds are really good in my opinion, but the reason I don't like a lot of black metal is because a lot of the times the production quality is so bad that it's hard to hear the chord changes and stuff. But I love when things have black metal influence.

nono, i agree.
symmetric in design has a more black vocal style. i know, i know. it is far from real black, but it is somewhat similar.
the production quality is very good. you and i are similiar in the fact that we love that deep rich sound. thats probably why we like power metal and melo death.

trust me, Symmetric in Design is a must listen to

Well I would consider myself a huge Equilibrium fan, but I agree that there are a few epic songs, then there are songs that are just plain good. And yeah, Christian has a really low voice in comparison, but when Equilibrium's singer does his death growls, it sounds very cool

lol actually, I'm pretty sure unbeseigt and blut Im Auge are the only titles I can translate.

Unbeseigt means undefeated

and I think "Blut Im Auge" means Blood on Face or something.

yeah something like that. I know very little german, so there is a 99 percent chance I'm wrong. But man, are they a good band
