The album begins with the track titled Cthulhu’s Calling which is an ominous introductory track really playing towards the dark and intriguing nature of this band. Now I have never heard these guys before, but I gotta admit, the moment those guitars kick in for the second track titled “Lies” I was hooked. Those guitars sound mean.  It reminds me of old Morbid Angel, it’s got me mean mugging while I’m head banging here. They have a solid minute and a half of spine splitting guitar riffs before the vocals join in. The ferocity of the sound is impressive, they walk the line of technical death metal. Is it too early to say that Lies is my favorite track? Holy shit that song blew me away. But they follow that up with an absolutely crushing track like Seed of Hatred. Now I usually will focus a lot on the drums, however I really want to point out the guitar tones. Riccardo and Fabio’s guitars just sound nasty, when thinking about a death metal sound. These guitars deliver the death blow by blow and throw in those classic old school pinch squeals. I dig the guitar solo on “Multiple Eyes” that song really leaves you wanting more. One thing that I really enjoy about the music on this album, is that for every track there is a solid set up between the guitars and the drums. They have really grabbed your attention within the first minute of every song and managed to get the listener hooked rather easily. The sound quality is great, and I dig that artwork. Looking for some new school death metal with a bit of old school influence and technical riffs and blistering drums. Then you will want to check out Soul Demise by Maze of Sothoth. 7/10 \m/
