For those not on the know, this is complicated brand of death metal, that relies on a unique mixing of riffs and squealing guitars, drum patterns galore and the comfortably despondent growls. This transmits pure ANGER. These tracks will pound the listener with hateful riffing and full drumming. Force of Destruction release an interesting album here. Each track starts off at a point and gradually drifts to a different mood with time changes, atmospheric changes, and varying speeds/intensities. Stylistically, this is still the same percussive-centered, soaring lead, blasting brutal style of death metal, but done in an intelligent manner. Each song spends time developing multiple well-thought out riffs while drums constantly rain down fills. Vocals emphasize short, powerful spurts that have an edge, while still maintaining trademark anti-religious lyrics. Production is very good for this type of album. The low, sometimes distant sound gives a very destructive, and evil atmosphere. Speeds are constantly varied and demand listener's attention. Moments can range from slow, sludgy riffs to pounding snare and solo combinations. Very technical from all aspects, but technicality that does, it serves a purpose.
