Never really been into technical for the sake of technical...always more into black than death. But holy shit is this album fantastic. On the surface it's pure technique, but if you dig even just a little you will found great melodies. Discovered Archspire after watching Dean and Claire on youtube.
Favorite track: Involuntary Doppelganger.
A unique, energetic strain of complex, aggressive metal that is intricate, idiosyncratic, and progressive. This is a new breath of life, and an exercise in dynamic technical metal virtuosity! Archspire

honestly I don't know why I hesitated to purchase this album for so long. in my eyes this record is a game changer and the clever use of the saxophone (of course this has to be mentioned) hits in the right spot. there's not a single bad song on this records, and it's even harder to choose your favorite one. in fact, I'm not sure if I selected the correct one yet. in the end there was nothing left to do, except to purchase all three albums from this band. alex
