TITS. mine arrived today. Very tight, in the vein of HoP but offers something a bit different.

Amazing.

A very melodic HoP, I thinks.

Solid.

HoP and Fleshgod need to simply merge guitarists and be one AMAZING band together.

Played with these guys last night, fucking amazing drummer... and it's the HoP vocalist I believe. Shame I didn't get to see all of their set but they palyed right after us and I was fucked up after getting off stage.

What I've heard sounds very good! Like a bit different an more melodic version of HoP like someone mentioned.

I have to agree with the "pretentious death metal" tag. Right on the money.

The classical sections are meaningless and gimmicky. The rest is just above-grade death metal.

I agree on the classical sections.

I stand by my "they should just merge with HoP and rule together" statement. 2x the riff ideas = twice as picky = prob twice as good with all the intensity.

Yeah that's a fair call. They aren't a BAD band by any means either.

If they merged the classical sections with their song structures they'd be pretty epic.

I love this sort of balls to the wall blasting stuff.

...but if the riffs aren't stellar it does get dull... as music at any pace does. : /

it's not perfect but it's the first album and it's fucking brutal, at first I thought I won't get over the melodical shit but the music still keeps up its brutality and pace and that's why I will probably buy it... Eventho it's not musically similar to Gorgasm I got sort of similar feeling while listening to this, it just keeps rolling and brutalizing, that's fine with me. Now give me the new Hour Of Penance, Giulio! :>

Really good music. The drums sound electric as hell and its all kinda pretty pro toolsy sounding. But one of the best/most refreshing death metal albums in a while. The vocals are so good ! New hour of penance is one of the few things to look forward to as well.

I have to disagree...when you have this and a bunch of other extreme albums on shuffle and then one of those tracks pops on, it's a fun interlude.

Its just very standard neo classical progressions. Its not suppose to be uber deep like all you fags want it to be. SOP already did that. Its very well done and the only band that sounds anything like this at all is gorgasm. (Who I think do it better) But this is the best dm in a while. I love how its pretentious to use classical harmony and theory in your music. Thats so ignorant. Theory and the like is just way of explaining things it`s not a set of rules. Its more of a language.

This isn't the case though. Its that the they serve no purpose really. Also, the emphasis on their "image" is quite ironic considering these "classical" sections encompass less than half the CD.

You don't exactly see Nile running around dressed like Egyptians because they incorporate a Middle Eastern influence into their style of "death metal"

Pretty close though...

As for FA, I think there's enough of value in their music for them to just kick the classical gimmick and put out decent brutal albums. This album actually has less of the decoration than I'd expected, I quite like it.

Like Chappy said it doesn't necessarily have to have meaning, but it would help if it actually had any purpose.
