Review by JD on November 13, 2009.

The newer styling of Death Metal mixing with Nu-Metal has been an interesting ride as the movement really starts to unfold on the metal scene. Slave Zero seems to be embracing this movement with heart and class, ending up creating their own brand of metal.

With very interesting arrangements through out the album, the band clearly have major amounts of talent, not to mention this sort of explosive energy that fuels the group. They are a Death Metal version of some hardcore metal in the vein of Hatebreed.... a feat that some have tried and horribly failed at, but it is clear that Slave Zero finally have done just that and done it very well.

With so many songs on this album that could be classified as amazing, I wont go into them, but just say that I was never bored throughout the disk. With my attention firmly affixed on each brash and highly volatile note this band produced, I found that I was becoming more and more impressed with each track.

The only side problem was the production... I thought it was a ‘muddy’ sort of recording that was put down... thankfully this little fact never did hurt Slave Zero’s album in the long run. Just go to the store, buy Slave Zero’s "Exempt From All Tolerance" and enjoy this offering. That is as simple of an endorsement that I can give.
