It has drawn a lot of comparisons to The Formulas of Death, but aside from the fact that both bands have made a big change in style on their sophomore records, I don't see that many similarities. The Formulas of Death has a much darker atmosphere and retained a lot more of the death metal elements of it's predecessor than Sweven did. Morbus Chron has taken their influences and created a unique sound, which I don't think is easy to do these days.
All of this Glad to see people liking it, I was worried for a second it wasn't going to be received very well. Probably my second favorite release of the year so far. I just keep coming back to it and finding more things to like about it.
