The intro to this album is absolutely fantastic; I can imagine it must really get the crowd pumped if used as their entrance music at their gigs. After that glorious start the album kicks in at a relentless speed with a full on metalcore assault that never really does subdue! Any fan of full on hardcore or serious deep heavy metal will certainly want an earful of this. I think it may be fair to say that the band has now made the switch from metal-influenced hardcore to hardcore-influenced metal, there are still some amazing breakdowns but there's no denying that this is full on metal. However there are other elements in this recording, such as the electronic elements that is best shown in the standout track, "To The Church". It's not just the music that is strong and powerful, the lyrics are pretty heavy too. The band is not shirking away from their faith at all and are willing to spot the flaws in themselves and others for the sake of the listener. This is a powerful album in terms of its message and its music.
