Here comes a promising melodic death metal band from Colorado known as Cryogen. This band has created 5 albums prior to this one known as Continuum which I believe is one of the best metal releases out there on the market right now. Outstanding production is what makes Continuum stand out as a big deal from the sound, the songs & most of all how it's gripping to the listener. Think of early In Flames, Lamb of God & All Shall Perish to name a few of what this band sounds like. The vocals are pretty easy to understand, and that's what I find to be one asset of Cryogen which proves that not all vocalists are the same. Melodic, brutal & straight up metal that destroys a shit ton of bands out there nowadays. Cryogen's sound is just impeccable and astonishing. If you're into the bands I have mentioned, then don't hesitate to go to your local music retailer and hit them up and demand this for your music collection. Sharing the stage with many acts like Kittie, God Forbid, Skinlab, Divine Heresy & a few others will please new fans and listeners alike to Cryogen, that is if they haven't heard them before. Cryogen is unique in their own way. Other than that, they pull of some stuff that some bands can't or won't these days. The band has been around since 2004, so for the past 10 years some people have been hiding under a rock and have probably missed what Cryogen is capable of doing with their music. With all that said, I'm gonna give this album an 8/10 stars. However, I can definitely see this band getting angrier and more aggressive over time. My personal favorite track of of this album is Machine. Also, might I add the fact Cryogen, pulls off by far an AMAZING cover of the legendary song Heartwork, originally done by Carcass. Until next time metalheads, this is EVILVENGEANCE666 signing off and reminding you to do the following things: KEEP SUPPORTING UNDERGROUND METAL, SUPPORT CRYOGEN, SUPPORT UNDERGROUND NOISE & MOST OF ALL: KEEP YOUR HORNS HIGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! \m/-_-\m/
