Just when you thought old style death metal was falling off the radar along comes this ear-blistering release which you could call melodic death metal if you wanted to show off. Plenty of fret-flying guitar solos with songs often building to epic climaxes and a vocalist whose extraordinary growls will scorch the wallpaper off your bedroom walls. With light vs darkness thoroughly explored in the songs with titles like "Hell Can't Stop Us Now", "Iscariot" and "A Proclamation Of Evil's Fate" this is a good debut produced by Living Sacrifice's Bruce Fitzhugh.
