I've just listened to the new one for the fifth time in the past 48 hours. I really can't get off this stuff. It's more straight up death metal than the other releases, the "core" elements are significantly reduced (though not absent), and the melodic riffs and ambient themes are sprinkled more frugally through this release. They still make sure to sprinkle in these other elements often enough to make them effective, and it's beautiful.

The drums are mixed extremely well compared to the last release and the whole production really shines a light on the brilliance of the riffs. Some of the timing in the songs reminds me of Organic Hallucinosis era Decapitated. I love this so much my balls hurt.

I don't think I'll be more obsessed with a new release until Morbid Angel finally get something out.
Trust in god, he'll give you shoes!
