This album showcases the band's various and wide metal influences - the guttural vocal work is very modern/thrash whereas some of the guitar work harks back more to the psychedelic rock of the 1970s and bands such as Spontaneous Combustion. It's a curious mix of hard industrial leanings and subtle fingerpicking. Some of the riffs are rather good ("Degenerate", for example) and the majority of the album is more straightforward - solid 100mph drumming, heavily distorted guitars and that vocal. It's not as harsh as some I've heard but it does get a bit wearing after a while and the more conventional interjections (eg, "Steadfast") were very good, making me wish they'd used this voice more. Some of the rhythmic changes ("Embers" for example, and the manic start to "Anchor") are very good and show just how tight this band is.
