Got a preordered cd a few days before the official release and am buying it again so I have it in my iTunes without having to rip it. That said, if they released an LP I would buy two. Words cannot express my appreciation for such an amazing and beautifully brutal album. The musicianship is almost inhuman in speed and creativity. I love Beneath the Massacre.

music is great and frantic. very technical mixed with some deathcore influence. very little but its there, combined with speed kick bass drum it blends well. very aggressive but vocals fall short. im not asking for a mix or different style, im just saying the music is great but has everyday cookie monster vocals. not bad, just average and done before.



Beneath's releases are always pretty impressive in my opinion. I still think "Mechanics of Dysfunction" had the best sound and most crisp recording but the last two were still great standouts in today's crowded metal scene. If you like technical metal and guttural vocals, this album won't let you down. Check out "Unheard". Definitely one of my favorite tracks off this album.

About Beneath the Massacre

Technical death metal band Beneath the Massacre hails from Montreal, Canada, where it was formed in 2004 by vocalist Elliot Desgagnés, guitarists Christopher Bradley and Jonathan Dubeau, bassist Dennis Bradley, drummer Justin Rousselle, and, for a brief spell, keyboard player Christian Pépin. Inspired by the ultra-brutal and hyper-complex death metal aesthetic pioneered by Canadian clinicians such as Cryptopsy and Neuraxis, Beneath the Massacre followed their debut 2005 EP Evidence of Inequity, with two highly regarded (but difficult to digest) full-lengths released through Prosthetic Records: 2007's Mechanics of Dysfunction, and 2008's Dystopia. Both albums were cut by the paired down lineup of Desgagnés, the Bradley siblings, and Rousselle, who later embarked on their first headline tour of the U.S. in 2008, supported by Arsis and Ion Dissonance, before joining the Summer Slaughter trek, also featuring Necrophagist, Cephalic Carnage, and Cattle Decapitation, among others. ~ Eduardo Rivadavia
