The length is also absolutely perfect, being short enough to not over extend, but just long enough to make you feel satisfied. And can I again just say how much I fucking love the riffs here? There isn’t a single bad riff on this album, and I’d even go further than that and say every riff on this album is at least great. And that they can focus so much on riffs and not make it feel like a tech death album is incredible, never do you not think you’re listening to a classic death metal style album.
The only really debate I have about this is whether or not to give it a perfect score or not. I’m not going to because I feel like in order to get that perfect score, you need to innovate to a greater degree than this album does. But god damn is it close to that 10/10. I might go revisit some of my other top records to see if this really is AOTY or not, but regardless, everyone should listen to this album, especially if you’re a fan of good death metal.
