In all honesty I have no idea why it is they decided to start off this record with the bland song that they did. My first impression was that despite the abruptness of the music and the harshness of the guitar sound, I just wasn't a fan of the death metal vocals nor how straight forward and boring the chord structures were. But then the 2nd song kicks in and the 3rd, 4th, 5th.... and it becomes more of a Doom meets Celtic Frost / Exodus / Slayer / Bolt Thrower kind of thing. Loads of power riffing and mosh breakdowns. If you look past the first song you're in for a huge rush!!
