Customer Reviews


Paul allenders guitar work is awesome, the most under rated player out there. The albums a new sound for cradle, not as fast as the last album, more of a nymphetamine album.
Not as dark as the older stuff, they have changed but everyone/thing does over that amount of time.
Pleae tour oz soon

A comeback

I've been liking Cradle albums less and less since the peak of Midian. But this new one is up there. Just epic. Reall really good guitar work.

Great album!!!

I was hesitant to buy this album but so happy I did! Marthus has figured out that death metal is meant to be both fast and heavy, not just fast. Danni is great in this with awesome timing for his vocals. And Paul is fantastic! Highly recommended!! Ps don't compare this album to any others they made please.
