Not to take anything away from the drummer on the last two albums, he’s great. This, however, is my favorite technical death metal album, and it’s mostly the drumming that puts it over the top. It’s brutal, technical, and the drum sound is right where it needs to be. I often have issues with drumming in brutal and tech death releases, and this hit my ears as perfection from the first track. Perfection.
Favorite track: Skeletons Of Steel, Timber And Blackened Granite.
