It's like "Symbiotic" from Conceived In Fire- it stands out.
Ron Gibson
Let's put it this way, if you know anything about Living Sacrifice from their previous albums over the years, then you will enjoy this new album.
Joshua D. Wheeler
This album is by far the best album by Living Sacrifice and it is right at the top with the best metal albums ever made in my opinion.

Little Rock, Ark. metalcore band Living Sacrifice spent the better part of the 90s leading the underground movement known as Christian extreme metal.

Before breaking up in 2005, Living Sacrifice played music with all the hallmarks of extreme music, down-tuned guitar snarls of distortion mic'd for maximum destruction, guttural and aggressive vocal barks from vocalist Bruce Fitzhugh and chunky odd-time rhythms that pummeled the listener without hesitation. And they wrote songs about their deep devotion to Christianity and God. This contradiction of sound and fury versus the sacred verses limited the band's audience. After breaking up, their fanbase wept, but few others took notice.

Their 2010 comeback album The Infinite Order is so shockingly intense, it's a revelation worthy of people finally taking notice. "Overkill Exposure" kicks things off at a breakneck pace, recalling the opening of the band's 1997 stomper, Reborn. The song's lyrics address the sensationalism of media and its interference with a moral life. "Rules of Engagement" and "Nietzche's Madness" continue the trend, with the latter song also provides a scathing critique of atheism, a change of pace from the one-dimensional worship lyrics of the band's first few albums. This album explores the complex spectrum of human emotions that can accompany a person of Christian faith, expressing anger and rebuttal through violent sound.

"Organized Lie" turns the criticism back onto religion itself, deploring the blind-minded approach of organized religion and the loss of individual faith as a result. Riffs are a fusion of the band's early death metal grinding with rhythmic hardcore riffs from the turn of the century.

although I have only heard one Living Sacrifice song until now ("Reject"), I can sum up two words on this new album by Living Sacrifice: beef cake. this album is really fast. I would not say that they are faster than Morbid Angel or Deicide, but they have the power to run with death metal's masters. if you have this album in your hand, the next step is to put it in your CD player. you will be blown away by their power. this may be back for a second run in my stereo. this is death metal with a Christian message.

I've been an avid fan since their debut in 1991. With their release of Reborn, they truly reinvented themselves and became the Living Sacrifice we can't get enough of. The Hammering Process did what many didn't expect, and that was make an even better album. Conceived In Fire was another solid release, but not as strong as the previous two. However, it is still a classic. Now we come to The Infinite Order. At first listen, fans will notice the brutal vocals throughout, without any "clean" vocals as found on Conceived In Fire. The use of percussion that LS introduced into metal, and performed perfectly is still there, just not as prominent as in the other releases. This is a great album. Track #2, "Rules of Engagement" has two guitar riffs that really grab you. It's like "Symbiotic" from Conceived In Fire- it stands out. In my opinion this is right there with the best that Living Sacrifice has ever recorded. Many people may not like this as much as Reborn or The Hammering Process, but they will still love it. Living Sacrifice is still a force and look forward to hearing more of them in years to come. The Infinite Order will be in my playlist for a long time.

If you're a Living Sacrifice fan, or a fan of extra heavy metal in general, you won't be disapointed by this album. The first 9 tracks see them incorporating in elements from the earlier thrash/death metal part of their discography which is great but at the same time I was hoping for them to push the envelope a bit more as they have on the last couple of albums. However once I hit track 10 (My Home Is God) my hunger for their newer style was fulfilled. Track 11 and 12 also helped LS continue to move forward while still staying true to thier roots. If you haven't heard LS yet then start with In Memoriom (a great retrospective 'best of' album). However if you are already familiar with them then this album needs to be in your collection.

What a highly anticipated album from one the the most important and influential Christian metal bands out there. I can't say enough about this band, they really helped pave the way for the genre long before metalcore really took off. So being a longtime fan of the band I downloaded this album right after it came out. The Infinite Order is filled with much of the same brutality and driving rhythm that Concieved In Fire and Hammering Process had. One of my favorite tracks on the record is a song called They Were One, which has an awesome guitar riff and showcases the great drum talents of Lance Garvin. This guy could pound out a complicated beat with an odd time signature and hit it right on like a computerized machine.
It is overall a good album, and I will always be a fan. But, I have to be honest here. This is not Living Sacrifice's best album by any means. Much of it, with the exception of the above song I mentioned, is monotonous and lacking in dynamics. More then half the songs on the record feature the same basic jackhammer speed bass drum kick coupled with the palm muting chug of the guitars, which is cool of course, and a staple of any good metal song, but when it is repeated as many times as it is on Living Sacrifice's latest album it becomes boring. So don't get me wrong, I love these guys and always will, their music has been with me all the way from my angst-filled teenage years until my curent days as a 30 year old husband and father and I will always be a Living Sacrifice metal head. Why so many great bands tend to fall into this trap of making mediocre albums that aren't as good as their early work, I really don't know, perhaps it's the musician's equivalent to writer's block.
