"I grew out of the hardcore scene," blah blah blah "ah, the ac/dc of the metalcore scene" blah blah blah "this band is good but only ok after you slept with the lead singer." WTF? What the hell are you people doing writing reviews for this album in the first place? Just reading the first sentence of your reviews prove you are not worthy of what this band has to offer.
Don't listen to any of these morons; this album is godly. As good as if not better than the Mark of Judas and a masterpiece of swedish-influenced metal (yes METAL, not METALCORE, as there are no core breakdowns, as the doofus mistakenly mentioned in the aforementioned review). The vocals and lyrics are distinctly American, which is a definate plus. In fact, the entire album is basically a social commentary on the state of the union...all wrapped up in a brutal yet beautiful assault on your senses. The Sadist Nation is really excellent from start to finish, and ends with an almost 13-minute instrumental opus. If you get the new reissue, it contains a nice dvd and an extra track, "For The Soul Of The Savior" from the Mark of Judas but is rerecorded. Definately the better version of an excellent song. For fans of At the Gates, in flames, beyond the sixth seal, unearth etc.
