Groundbreaking technical death metal from Montreal. First time ever on vinyl! Technical in a Jazzy way like Atheist, but brutal and full like a Suffocation, Cryptopsy or Immolation album. Gorguts' fourth album is a masterpiece of technicality, combined with structurally solid compositions with all the hooks necessary to make a truly memorable album. The drumming and bass work are impeccable and the lyrics are not the average death metal fare (seems like Luc has drawn some inspiration from Nile in conceptualizing this album's lyrics). There is also plenty of variety in the pacing of songs - ranging from the blasting gallops of "Inverted" and the beginning of "Unearthing the Past" to the sludgy "Quest For Equilibrium", which is reminiscent of Morbid Angel's "God of Emptiness" - to make things even more interesting. This is an album that will satisfy die-hard death metal fans and music theory nerds alike.
