Could Psycroptic top themselves with their new album? The answer unfortunately is a resounding no. I used to think that Ob(Servant) was one of the best albums of 2008, now I'm convinced it's among the best metal albums of all time. I've been listening continuously to it since 2008 and I still can't get enough of it.

Psycroptic made us wait 4 years for a new album and the result is underwhelming, not just in comparison to the overwhelmingly brilliant Ob(Servant), but taken on its own merits, starting with the boring cover art that can't hold a candle to the fascinating cover of Ob(Servant).

Those who were critical of Ob(Servant) ought to be satisfied. All of their criticism have been addressed in The Inherited Repression. The songs are slower, simpler, the structure clearer. The vocals are also simpler, not as varied, and downright reduced. The drums have more punch and depth.

But none of these changes constitute improvements. The composition is far less interesting. It's a somewhat lighter version of Psycroptic. Gone is the dizzying compositional wealth we've seen in all other albums. After listening to a couple of songs, a pattern emerges- there's a high pitch guitar lick followed by a rushing down and up a scale. And this takes place in most songs. The licks are 3 or 4 notes only and sound even somewhat silly as in the high bent notes of Euphorinasia and From Scribe to Ashes. The problem is that it's too "simplistic" for Psycroptic and I don't mean to diminish the complexity of Joe's playing here. We have gotten used to hearing a treasure of musicianship in every song. Also, high notes never sound all that good in death metal and here there is far too much high pitch guitar work going on- not particularly brutal.

I have enjoyed getting into psycroptic over the past few years, but this album is definitely my favourite - its solid, it has extreme parts and nice guitar, but doesnt disappear into to much out of control jazz-jamming like guitar work which some other technical death metal albums succumb to - very pleased with this album and one that i will be listening to alot

The production is ideal for this material, the guitar tone is incredible, the powerful death metal vox are fairly straight forward and vary slightly between three different styles with focus on a hardcore tortured howl, the guitar and drums put them in the elite of technical musicians, the composition is mostly brilliant with excellent dynamics and space as well as providing that wall of sound you want to impact you until the hair raises on your neck, the transitions work well between the barrage of riffs. My favorites are Carriers Of The Plague, Euphorinasia, Become The Cult, and The Sleepers Have Awoken. There is no filler and even if some of the riffs don't work for you, wait a few measures and you'll be back in the groove which this record has plenty.

This is a great album, but if you've heard obServant, you know what youi're going to get. No surprises. They may have structured their songs out a little differently, but nothing drastic. But that's just fine. These guys can shred with the best of them. In fact, they are easily my favorite "tech" death band. Most tech death bands are just too spastic with no groove. Most of their riffs are like solos. But Psycroptic has this thrashy riffing that is just bad-ass. They flat out rock on this album. I think their vocals are perfect also. It's not the deep growl that everybody else does. It's more of a shouting scream kind of thing. It just fits perfect. The death growls sound wrong for tech death music IMO. That's one of the reasons I don't love Necrophagist and Decrepit Birth as much. The vocalist sounds bored compared to all the chaos going on with the music. So either way, you need to pick this up. Buy everything by these guys! You won't be disappointed.

Discovered this band from a friend of mine - around the time symbols of failure came out. I have been into them ever since. this album is different, but still good - showing every element of the bands sound in the past. Keep up the good work .....

This is an awesome CD. I'm new to this band. The album is chock full of fantastic guitar work, as well as the rest of the band-work. I like their sound. You shouldn't be disappointed if you have any curiosity about them.
