Psycroptic's "Symbols of Failure" is a brutal technical DM masterpiece and their best album to date. This CD gets more and more interesting with every listen. Drumming is impeccable and the musicianship on guitar and bass are outstanding. The songs are dynamic with jagged changes in direction. The riffage is non-stop and full of unexpected twists. The vocals by new front man are great. The low growling and shrieking mix brings nice color to the vocals. Alongside Spawn of Possession's "Noctambulant" this is my favorite recent CD. I highly recommend to fans of brutal technical death metal. The sheer musicianship will drag you in and you will love it more and more with each listen. The lyrics and artwork are awesome. This is a complete CD in all respects and an essential for any technical death metal collection.

I bought this based on what I heard from the song samples. If you love crazy technical metal with vocals that are completely insane, this is for you. It's a total package. Good vocals. Good music. Good concept and lyrics. Good artwork. Nothing not to like here. It's kind of like Brain Drill, but subsitute Techno-thriller for the grotesque cannibal type stuff.

i have been a fan ov these guys for a while now and just recently ordered this album because i was having alot ov trouble finding it (hence why its 26 plus dollors) but i just got it a few days ago and it was exactly what i expected. the musik is relentless in its approach to the techy side ov things, mainly the guitars i mean every song is composed ov just insane riffs!! i have always admired dave haley's drumming too ( he also drummed on aborted's album slaughter and apparatus a methodical overture) and he doesn't dissapoint on this album either!! the only reason this didn't get a 5 is because although the vocals are incredibly ranged he goes from highs to lows gutterals to highs ect.. but im really not a fan ov high vocals, and i thought there were to many on this album. don't get me wrong though they are awesome this band is one ov the best in technical metal right now, if your a fan ov necrophagist arsis obscura deeds of flesh or decrepit birth you need this album!!!!! if your like me and are not down with highs so much i would suggest picking up their album THE SCEPTER OF THE ANCIENTS, its way heavier not as techy but its alot more brutal!

This is my first Psycroptic album. I bought it mostly because of hearing good things about Psycroptic from people,reviews,and seeing them tour with some of my favorite bands. And from the hype,Symbols of Failure sounded like a awesome album,with technical guitar playing all by one guy (Joe Haley),fast technical drumming (by David Haley),crazy vocals with various styles (by Jason Peppiatt),and the bass is...well a typical bass: inaudible (by Cameron Grant).

Upon getting Psycroptic's "Symbols of Failure" and listening to it every once in a-while for these last couple of months I've had it. The hype I heard,to be honest is actually true,but that doesn't make this a good CD,why? Because the same thing that makes this album sound good is the same thing that makes it sound boring and emotionless. Yes,Joe Haley's guitar playing is technical in a weird style that sounds somewhat robotic and uninspiring; It sounds like he's recording all his guitar riffs (which is a lot) on a time limit and he's trying to get through all his guitar riffs in each song as fast as possible. And it is amazing that all the guitar playing that I'm hearing on this album is done by one guy,but that also means that there is no layered guitar riffs,harmonizing,and solo's (or shredding in general) on the whole album,which for me shows a lack of creativity. It's understandable though,since they do have to play live.

Now to probably the worst thing about this album,the vocals. Jason Peppiatt's vocals are crazy and does have a wide range of vocals. But again,that's the same thing that makes them sound horrible and really annoying. I can't understand one word he's saying!

I'm a die-hard Psycroptic fan --their last 2 CDs are the best technical death metal I've heard yet (OB and Inherited Repression). The vocals on this one are ...annoying at best, and actually ruin most of the fantastically performed songs. I've read that this was their first album with Jason Peppiatt on vocals....not sure why these vocals are horrible compared with the next two albums --but glad he changed it up! The Haley bros (drums and guitar) are phenomenal as usual, but had to give this one 3 stars, because the Vox are just too painful to listen to.
