Trumans Water's indisputable masterpiece takes the band's patented angular riffs and counter-intuitive time changes to their ultimate extreme.

Shorn of all clutter, their songs are continuous series of crescendos and climaxes, as tension inducing riffs are followed by screaming thrash out.

The record seems infused with chaos as guitars career through songs, untethered from each other concerned only with squeezing in another riff or hook.

Such is the relentless savagery, it takes an impressive stamina to listen to the whole album's 77 minutes in one sitting. However, Trumans Water have never sounded so focused, either before or since.
