A distressingly slow post left BD waiting for some time for thisrelease by Noctiferia, but it was so worth the wait – This is one albumthat you have to own!
Opening with the creepy ‘premonition’, first track proper ‘terror’is a merciless attack on the senses that recalls vintage Fear Factoryand Lamb of God. Unfeasibly heavy, it’s so much more than the currentcrop of over-hyped, over-promoted Killswitch Engage sound-a-likes outthere and it’s both refreshing and thrilling to hear music this heavyplayed with such fire and conviction. ‘Delluders and followers’ is thesoundtrack in your mind to The Terminator, filtered through some sweetguitar runs and the sort of drum assault that could quell a riot.Meanwhile keyboards are used sparingly to augment rather than overwhelmthe sound and the production captures the whole thing in enviableclarity. ‘Monarch’ slows the pace for the briefest of moments for someatmospheric guitar work before coming crashing in like Dimmu Borgir attheir peak, all crushing riffs and distorted vocals, while the unhingedguitar solo is a revelation. ‘Demoncracy’ is the closest the band comesto the sound of “Demanufacture” with its evil synth opening, tightlyregimented guitar and “money is your God” refrain.
“Slavedriver” is somewhat faster than the previous tracks, returningto the Dimmu sound of ‘Monarch’, but with drums that sound simply HUGE,pounding away with enough ferocity to make the foundations of my flatcrumble. It’s also a testament to this band’s skill that, like DimmuBorgir, they’ve fashioned incredibly heavy music that is alsoaccessible without any hint of compromise. ‘Rust’ once again slows thepace briefly, allowing the listener a chance to draw breath, but it’sonly the briefest of pauses before the band slam in for a song thatwinds its way through a number of tempos and technology-aidedaggression, allowing room for fluid solo in the bridge. ‘Nonindividuum’ is another sample infused slab of heaviness, ‘Cartarsis’ isa twisted, psychedelic fairground ride from hell and ‘Demagog’ sees theband laying down swathes of hyperactive guitar over a truly thunderousdrum performance.
‘Holymen’ has a groove all of its own that should ignitedance-floors in rock clubs up and down the country, ‘Samsara’ arnassesthe sound of the Far-East to good effect, all swirling winds and mysticvoices, while finale ‘.M.02’ is a brutal trawl through martial drums,voices in the dark and eerie synth.
Too often bands are claimed to be the natural successor to something– but here Noctiferia take the blue print of Fear Factory’s‘Demanufacture’ opus and filter it through NIN, Dimmu Borgir andBehemoth to create a truly stunning record. This is precise, technicalmetal with myriad ideas pumping through its evil core. To say that thisalbum is recommended is not enough, if you love metal, you will lovethis exceptional album. Outstanding.

Mislim, ne želim nikog vrijeđat no meni se nimalo ne đasvi njihov zvuk, no offense. Gledao u Ljubljani jednom, katastrofa.
Nema do Dickless Tracy-ja, Scaffold-a i mojih compadresa iz A Murder Theory-ja.

Opet kažem, to je moje viđenje/stav o bendu. Ne mora značit da se nekom drugom neće svidjet.
