Every time you listen to it you'll find a new nuance or detail and it will last forever.
M. Waldenvik
I think its unfair to expect somethign so much better after such a great debut, so I will reserve my judgement until at least their thrid album.
Old School Gamer
With the lack of talent in the music industry it is great to see stellar writing and ability that this band has on this album.

I first heard this album when it came out in november 2008. Their first album, akeldama, didn't really do anything for me but upon listening to planetary duality i was very open-minded.

This album's got a long-list of positives. First of all, it's a concept album. Everything from the lyrics to the overall atmosphere of the almost flows together. The main concept being, in my opinion, comparing today's socital ills to the global decimation of alien beings. Every line in every song is well thought out. Second, the guitar work is incredible. Everything from slow crushing riffs (beginning of sons of belial, end of planetary duality II: prophecie's fruition) to really progg-y/groovy riffs (xenochrist, the ancient covenant). Also, there are solos in every song, and none let up in their amazing-ness. The drumming is stupendous and is so is the bass. In summation, the instrumentation is this album is flawless. The production is crystal clear, and the vocals are sicker than i've ever heard.

The only real complaint i have about this album is that the drums are too loud and over shadow the guitar from time to time.

I'd recommend this to all death metal fans really, in my opinion the best release of 08 and 09 up to May 09.

Are you a fan of fast paced brutal insanity with face melting guitars and break neck drumming patterns? Do you enjoy bands that step outside the box and experiment with their sound and/or style? Does the ideal of aliens, area 51 and the complete annihilation of the human race interest you? If you answered yes, shook your head yes or continued reading intently due to the sheer excitement of what might come next, chances are this album is for you! Thanks for reading, now put back on your aluminum foil helmet, they might be listening!!!

The Faceless has released an outstanding album that's absolutely worth checking out. The band specializes in technical death metal in the melodic vein. What do I mean by that? Well, I was listening to this CD and it reminded me of groups like Cynic, Bloodbath, Opeth, Meshuggah, Death, and Soilwork... oh, and with a touch of black metal, too. Bottom line: It's technical, but it has its melodic parts and is absolutely musical (unlike the technical death metal that's purely noise.)

I recommend this to fans of metal. I highly recommend it to fans of extreme metal or any of the groups I may have listed above.

One day when I was at a local FYE, I happened to pick this up at random, without ever hearing The Faceless before, while I've heard OF them. I was impressed by the cover art, it made it look epic. But I figured looks can be deceiving, so I listened to some samples and thought I'd give the album a shot, so I bought it... Man, the samples hardly did it any justice. I was really impressed after my first listen. They put a few unexpected twists here and there that add onto the overall vibe and atmosphere of the album (such as "Shape Shifters," something totally different for a tech-death album). My only beef with this album, however, is that it's way too short, but it's not enough for me to take off the 5th star. Other than that, it's a very solid album, doesn't get boring at all. This is an essential album for every tech-death metal collection, I recommend it for anyone looking for something new.

This is one of those albums that you wish was longer. Their previous album Akeldama was short too, clocking in at just over 33 minutes. I prefer Akeldama to Planetary Duality, but Planetary Duality more than holds its own.

They use electronics to add an effect to the vocals sometimes, but it does not detract from the music. Actually, it fits in pretty well. Interesting album art too- sort of a Sci-Fi Horror thing happening.

You might like to know that there are spoken words on track 8 (Hideous Revelation) that are pretty freaky. The man who speaks sounds truly freaked out. This is not a dealbreaker for me, but I could have done without it. If you like Origin or Necrophagist, you probably will like this band too.

Overall, a short but sweet album. The Faceless are a force to be reckoned with. Let's hope we haven't heard the last of them.

The Faceless sounds as if it came from outer space. the vocals are a blend of clean vocals, death growls, and singing in a vocorder. they are a combination of death metal and deathcore with a hint of jazz now and then. I honestly don't know where this band originates, but they are so cool and so original. I hope this band releases a new album soon. from what I can see, they blaze an all new trail to follow. all I can recommend is if you haven't gotten the 1st album, you should do so immediately, which I may try to do. this is the most upbeat death metal band I have listened to, and the most spaced out, as well. I wonder what other bands on the Sumerian label have up their sleeves, because I am going to be trying more of them out.
