Firstly, this CD is pretty much non-stop hard riffs, "My Oath to Madness" is my favorite, awesome blend of heavy riffs, speed, and the chorus is really catchy. A little bit of more gutteral death metal vocals can be heard, but it is mostly the usual harsh, higher vocals in most of the songs (which I like the best). But best of all, this CD was mixed perfectly. I found that when listening to Celebration of Guilt, there was way too much emphasis put on the bass and drums. I have a standard subwoofer in my car and the bass was just overpowering. You couldn't hear the vocals and the guitar was muffled, it was a storm of cymbals and double bass. On the other hand, "We are the Nightmare" is perfect. The drums are crisp, and the guitar and vocals are prominent. This CD sounds incredible, there is no filler in any of the songs. Just straight up Arsis technical death that can't be beat!

To be honest, I never owned an album by Arsis 'till today. I bought it at the local FYE. I have to admit. I'm highly impressed with it! The guitart work is uncanny and stealth-like. You can't tell what the next melody will ever be. It's a bit blunt and such but nontheless, It's a fine fine album. This album for me sound likes someone put SOD, Slayer, and Dark Tranquility in a food processor. LMAO, And it taste damn good. "We Are The Nightmare" is unpredictable technical thrash/death metal. If That makes sense for you genre-mongors out there. Kidding.

I recommend this to fans of The Black Dahlia Murder and such. Great Album!

This album is Fantasic...I didn't really like the last LP they put out...but This is The best album Arsis have released yet...It's Brutal, Technical, Catchy and Melodic. Very Well produced, Tight Drumming with Great Guitar playing by Malone, In my top albums for '08 so far.

Phenomenal CD. Just what you'd expect from people who created A Celebration of Guilt. Just like the first album, it just grabs you and won't let go. If you thought that ACOG was the best thing that happened to metal since the Slaughter of the Soul, get this.

Over the years since Arsis's great debut album A Celebration of Guilt which was a grounding breaking album for a genre that was going stale,melodic death metal,I've become a Arsis fan.With the EP album A Diamond for Disease that seemed to take the guitar technicality and song writing up a notch.Then there was United in Regret which had a few great songs on it but the rest of the album seemed to be missing something for me,possibly the thrash and aggressive sound of the past two albums.

And now there's We Are the Nightmare which I've had since it came out,and I'm some what mixed about this album.The technicality of all the instruments on this album is crazy and way more technical then any of the other albums,and as a guitar player I love hearing shredding guitars and even crazy drumming.But the price to pay for this technical album was melody,which is what I loved about Arsis,the ability to combine melody and technicality.But this one over does it for a melodic death metal album and now is almost running along the line of just technical death metal.Which is a genre I like,but what I liked more was James Malone's technically melodic guitar playing,and the way he layered the guitars was something I never heard before and something that seems to be missing from this album,and I also missed Mike Van Dyne's drumming (though the drumming on this album is amazing),who left the band for this album but heard he's back for the next one,which is a good thing I think because his drumming style suited Arsis perfect.And Compared to the other albums which had a full bass filled brutal sound,this one has a empty hollow sound to it and seems to be lacking that heavy sound along with those dark melody's of the past 3 albums.

Though this sounds like a negative review,I still like this album.

Wow... in the span of four years you can really REALLY tell that old-fashioned power metal is infusing every genre of metal; Amon Amarth's "Twilight of the Thunder God" and Arsis's "We are the Nightmare" are practically writing a template for a new subgenre called "Power-Death Metal." Arsis has written the most melodic disc in their repertoire, but it does come at the expense of what I felt made their initial efforts a home run smash.

The mid-range vocals are there: uniquely Arsis, as is the incredible speed. However, the riff patterns themselves aren't quite as original as those found on their first two discs: there's some basic rhythms that are found here, and though this did begin in "United we Regret," it is more prevalent in this release. However, the sheer amount of leads available in each song... is more than worth mentioning here. The occasional borrowing of tried-and true riff patterns can be forgiven because they are counterbalanced by highly technical speed-leads that Herman Li would be proud of. Guitar aficionados will be very pleased.

As for what's missing? The heavy concentration on dual-guitar leads takes a step away from the part of Arsis that always made them a perennial favorite: The darkness and brutality have been dialed down on this release. I'd go so far as to say that the artwork on the cd this time does not accurately match the music contained within: There's more than one song that abandons minor key tonality for major-key guitar leads. This simultaneously showcases the band's classical roots, but also makes each song less menacing. Less brooding.

"The Face of My Innocence" was in my opinion, both Arsis's opening salvo and metal mission statement: "We are dark AND melodic; we groove and we're brutal!
