If "Uprising" is Entombed's tribute to Motorhead, "Morning Star" reminds me a lot of Slayer and Converge - just a nonstop, crushingly heavy, relentless, thrashy and sludgy death metal masterpiece that still manages to be head-banging groovy.

Lyrically it's sort of a concept album about Christianity and Satan, which isn't exactly breaking new ground. I don't tend to pay much attention to lyrics at any rate. The rhythms are tight and chugging, crisp snappy drumming, spirited raw vocals, ripping guitar solos - Morning Star has a lot to offer, and is possibly the best release from this consistently great band.

Favourite tracks: Chief Rebel Angel, I for and Eye, Year One Now, Fractures, City of Ghosts, About to Die
