MetalBite Review by Adam M on 5/16/2013
Behemoth is recalled by the likes of these powerful metal titans. There is a very abrasive and dark tone to the music that grabs hold of the listener and tears through them with the brutally catching music rhythms.

The power of the riff is indeed a focal point with "Blasphemer’s Malediction" and captures your attention on several of these tracks. Each tune features a similar amount of ferocity to the last Behemoth masterpiece "Evangelion" and thus makes an impact upon the listener. There are few moments where the chaos dies down, making for a greatly chaotic listen. Those that like Behemoth will again enjoy this band, but this makes them rather unoriginal as well. Tortured screaming seemed to take reign for vocals, much like Behemoth again, making tracks like 'Under The Will Of the Lord' more powerful and menacing. The lack of originality and need for slightly better production are the two weakest parts of the album, while the pounding guitar rhythms and catchy drum work are highpoints to be found here.

Fans of Behemoth owe it to themselves to check out this album and fans of Death Metal in general should find something to like as well.
