Wow. These guys are friends of mine, so I thought that when they, especially Zane, was talking it up to me about being a great album that they might had been exaggerating a bit. It's no secret that I loved the first album, although I thought it was definitely a debut based on a few things. This new album, all I can say is wow. It's brilliant. The new singer, Steve Braun (from Ashent), is brilliant on it. Kris adds a whole new dimension with his backup death vocals, done very tastefully and are sung in a way where they are actually understood. The album as a whole is quite angry at the current state of affairs in this country and it really shows through the music and lyrics. I really can't say enough good things about it. My favorite songs would be Rise To Revise, Mouth Without A Head, Desecration Day, and Inside Looking Out (The Icon & The Ghost). If that wasn't enough, Pamela Moore (Sister Mary of Queensryche fame) guests on the album and does a great job. It comes out in a month, buy it!
