Sound — 10
The sound on this album blew me away and is absolutely astonishing and not one second am I disappointed with the sound. The guitars on this album were just amazing considering that Matt and Corey are both very skilled guitarists and they pull off amazing riffs and absolutely insane solos I mean there isnt that much modern bands with this guitar skill. Paolo is an amzing bassist and he blew me away when I heard it because man he is one skilled bassist and I really love that solo he does in the the instrumetal song (The Crusade) and I hope they have more songs like that. Travis is one skilled drummer I mean man he just keeps improving with every album that Trivium do but too bad they didn't have a drum intro on this album like they did on Ascendancy but nonetheless the drums just blew away. So yah the sound just blew me away and I can't until their next album.

The lyrics are amazing Matt Heafy can sing about anything like politics, racism, sexism, honour, selfishness and a lot of other crazy shit that people have don't wrong. I really love the way that Matt writes his lyrics and he is the best lyric writer in the world right at this moment because well he is actually sending messages across the world. I'm kind of glad they moved away from the screaming but I really love their screaming and Ascendancy and Ember To Inferno were f--king amazing.
Overall Impression — 10
This album cannot compare to any other albums because Trivium are one skilled band I'll tell you that right now and I know a lot of skilled bands but Trivium are one of my favourite bands right now and their music just blew most of the albums in this world out of the water. The most impressive songs on this album well, I don't really know because all of them send out a massage to me especially "This World can't Tear Us Apart" because I feel that way for my girlfriend and I'm serious I don't think any hate can pull us away. I love everything about this album and I hate nothing about this album and when I heard it I was like WOW man these guys are f--king skilled at what they do. There isn't anything to hate about this album I swear! If it were stolen I would like rip of the guys head of whoever stole this album because I absolutily love it. If it were lost I would buy five copies I swear to god! Get off you lazy ass and get this album right now I swear you will be blown away unless you listen to pussy music!
