Tr00 Grave fans do not like this record, and I think the Death Metal Establishment (DME?) will tell you their first album is the best; however, I disagree.
For me, this album sounds more musically mature (I hate that word but I think it's the right one) than Grave's earlier works. It sounds like they cared more for the quality of the music and production here.
This album is just as heavy and any of the previous works, but it is more cohesive. Hell - it is just better. Grave would eventually top this record, but in 2002, this was their high water mark, and they were getting better. They were not selling out or going soft as the DME may have you think.
