It's part 3 of the Iconoclast series (2 being the DVD Bildesturm) and it's the best part! Part 1 I loved a lot but only a few of the songs got 5 stars. In Invictus they all got 5 stars!
The Omen was a great start to the album- "How can you love me, If we can't save this world?"
Combat was the first song I downloaded after hearing it on a Podcast. It blew me away with it's ferocious vocals fast beat.
Buried In Forgotten Grounds was like a song of revenge that made me think of World War 2 (I hope it doesn't make me seem like a jerk, but these guys are from Germany so a lot of their songs make me think of World War 2. Sorry, guys...)
Sevastopol is one of my personal favorites. The chorus is incredible and inspiring. If I was in the army defending some place, I would be jamming this! "Now in the distance we see the fires rage! They will not take this place, will not defile this ground!"
The other songs- I Was I Am I Shall Be, The Lie You Bleed For, Return to Sanity, Against Bridge Burners, Of Forsaken Poets, Nowhere (A Therapy? cover track) and Given In Death are all on my Go List on my Sansa Fuze- I love them! So if you haven't heard this album yet, get it!
WARNING! Contains a loud screaming German and a kick ass band playing the most beautiful sounding melodic hardcore/deathmetal hybrid ever. Not for everyone. Side effects are shattered eardrums, an overwhelming desire to scream along (destroying the hearing of all of the mainstream media whores you may associate with) and an urge to rebel against everything you deem unjust!
