Album Review

Anterior should be drawn and quartered over their befuddling moniker alone, but since it's far too late to go back and alter that now, one supposes that a fair and balanced review of their musical merits alone is probably in order. Bah humbug! Fact is, this British ensemble packs all of the right melodic death metal stunts into this, their second album for Metal Blade. Standout cuts like "Blood in the Throne Room," "The Evangelist," and "Venomous" display buckets of confidence and buttloads of musical ability, while pretty much nailing that tenuous balance between brutality and grace, instrumental precision and primal rage required of this style. Yet they also lack that all-important "it" factor (or even the more commercial hooks of, say, a Trivium) to truly distinguish Anterior from the competition, and if these can't get the job done, then what of the less impressive tracks on hand? A brief interlude built of synthetic strings and majestic guitars named "Echoes of the Fallen" is the only remote deviation from form, but blink and you'll miss it...heck, you may miss it with eyes wide open. But, all things considered, if solid, no-frills melo-death-thrash execution within a familiar sonic framework sounds enticing, then one could do a lot worse than Anterior. Now about that band name again....

Great Alblum

Im telling you in 2007 when I first heard Anterior I was actually stunned by how good this underground metal band was. I kept telling all my buddies I cannot wait for the new stuff to come out, 2011 rolled around and now us (the fans) have an amazing piece of work. BUY THIS ALBLUM! I am telling you, it is probably one of the top metal alblums out this year. If you are unsure about purchasing the whole alblum at least purchase By Horror Haunted, The Evangelist, and/or Blood in The Throne Room and that might change your mind. Overall this alblum gets a 10/10, the truest metal alblum of 2011.

Amazing

I have been waiting a long time for this album ... Worth the wait ... Pick up this cd you will not regret it ... And buy their first cd. My ears are in heaven

Finally a second album

F'in awesome.
