Cryptopsy's s/t album.

It's pretty good. I never heard the Unspoken King so I can't make any comment about how much better this is. It is less chaotic (stylistically) than Once Was Not. To me, it sounds like 2012 Cryptopsy trying to be 1996 Cryptopsy. The music is very well done but it misses Eric Langlois on bass. The new guy tries to ape his style but he can't copy it 100%.

The weakest point is the vocals. The new guy just seems to be doing his best Lord Worm impression the whole album.

I'd say it's a strong 3.5/5
