Just think - had Nergal not been successful in his battle with leukemia, this could well have been the very last Behemoth album. Luckily, as things stand it was just the herald of a brief hiatus for the band that come to a close with the release in 2014 of The Satanist - an album which I feel probably benefited from them taking a bit of downtime, the years of recovery not only allowing Nergal to heal but also allowing the entire band to recharge their creative batteries. It's not that this is a bad album so much as this is exactly what we've come to expect from 2000s-era Behemoth - solid, technical blackened death metal delivered without too many surprises. It certainly scratches the itch, but the same's true of several of the preceding albums and it doesn't do much to make itself stand out.
