Not so well with me, at least compared to their last album, which is my favourite from them so far. Maybe it will open up with more listens though.

^ I'd probably give it 3.5 - 4 star at the moment but I'll review it after a few more plays.

I’m loving Tech Death a lot these days. Mind-blowing musicianship - getting much more technical than Prog in many ways.
Growl Vox are an acquired taste - can’t say I understand a lot of it, it’s even difficult to follow with a lyric sheet.
Very exciting music though. Hope to have a lot of fun here !!
Already recognise many of you from P.A. too !!

Loads of great tech death though with some I find it's a case of style over substance whilst tecnically brilliant lacking memorable riifs.

For the record :
Yeah, I’ve been Prog for (virtually) all my life. Maiden for ever - I got onto Prog BECAUSE of Maiden (Tull, Nektar....)   Always dug Sabbath, Purple and Zepp. Budgie whip them all. Blah Blah. All the Canterbury things are embedded deep in my soul. Still love them dearly.
In the last few years, I’ve been warming to DM. I did get Opeth’s Damnation as soon as it appeared, coz a buddy said it’s great, mellow and with heaps of Mellotron !! So, I (eventually) got into Opeth. Growls do shock me. Then, I guess they’re supposed to. I’m getting used to them (4 years and counting...) but still very ‘select’ as to what I ‘connect’ with. I know little about Prog (just my delusions.....) and even less about Metal. Don’t crucify me if I ask dumb questions .......
Black Metal (apart from Krallice) gives me nightmares. Truly.
Love Thrash, I do think METALLICA are waaay overrated - my fave being Death Magnetic, even after all those years.   
Dunno - quiz me, recommend things, whatever. Don’t laugh.....
I did catch Meshuggah earlier this year, support band being Thy Art Is Murder, and it was a FANTASTIC experience - everyone on the same page, everyone enjoying themselves. Total bliss !!!

Gotta go see em live!!!!. They kill on stage. Great technical precision and loads of brutal grooves. If you enjoy Suffocation I can highly recommed that you check out Dying Fetus. Start with this one:
 
DYING FETUS - Destroy the Opposition cover
 
But these artists are great too:
 
.. Album Cover
 
CRYPTOPSY - None So Vile cover
 
PYREXIA - System of the Animal cover

Oh yes, Suffocation are great and Effigy Of The Forgotten was a great debut but also check out their later stuff which I think is even better in the main. My favourite release of their earlier phase is the Despise The Sun EP where every track is a killer.

If you like the tech stuff you should check out Nile, I think you may be blown away though Dying Fetus that Jonas recommends above like Suffocation have plenty of groove.

^ Yes !! I LOVE Nile. Karl Sanders and Co. have fully impressed me.
Jonas, I listened to the Cryptosy album you’ve suggested - I’m not sold on Lord Worm’s growling - perhaps too ‘neanderthal’ for my liking ?? Music was great though. I guess I’m a bit of a fuss-pot with the sounds of growl vox. I take it as another ‘instrument’ as such, adding a vocal intensity to match the musical feast, but I am still a bit uncomfortable with them

^LOL yeah they take som getting used to. I´m pretty picky when it comes to death metal growlig myself. Especially if they are over processed (put through too many effects). Arch Enemy is the prime example of horrible death metal vocals...put though way too many effects.
 
...of course I wouldn´t put it as bluntly as that in a review, but I definitely wouldn´t be praising the vocals either, if they didn´t stand out in a positive way.
 
Some death metal vocals detract the quality of the music, some are just there (that´s most cases IMO), and some really provides the music wth an extra dimension (the few).
 
To my ears the tendency is that many of the "old school" death metal vocalist like John Tardy, Chuck Schuldiner, and Marc Grewe had their own sound, while many contemporary artists sound a lot like either each other or like vocalists who have come before them. It´s very seldom I hear a new death metal release, featuring what I would characterize as distinct sounding vocals. Those days are over.

Take into consideration that Arch Enemy have a female vocalist. I do find women growlers fascinating    (Don’t take that the wrong way......).
Also, when I tell / show foks an example of, say, Nile, they look at me as if I’m some sort of fuckwit
You really can’t justify why you like something, you just do. I think eggs are disgusting, and I usually give folks who eat eggs in my presence, the same ‘your a fuckwit’ look

Most of the posters on here are American or European, so they won't understand that growler reference. I'm a Kiwi, so I do.WinkLOL

Just thinking of proggy death metal for ya. Here's some old school stuff. Disharmonic Orchestra:


Atheist (not the correct artwork, but the right song):


Atrocity (not great quality):


Tiamat:
