With the brutal guys of Knoxville, Tennessee, they have brought the deathcore scene to what it really should up raised up towards. With their double bass machine beats, blastbeats out of nowhere, other deathcore bands don't stand a chance against the drumming in this band. Having two guitars for a death metal/hardcore band can be pretty brutal, but when you put three together, it's like a earthquake nonstop! They've made it clear that their hear to show us what deathcore is all about. One thing that really does stand out, alot, in this album is the mind blowing vocals. For someone growl so long and scream the way Phil does, has some great skills. He is by far the best growler in deathcore history.

The lyrics have the most great story in each song. If you want something in your face and ready to fight, you got it! With the anti-messiah feel to these and the evil stories they put out to us, it's quite obvious that they stick to what they believe in. For example, the line from Father Of Lies: "My procreator, stand your ****ing ground" really shows about them being against god and telling all of us, that he isnt as strong or no where near what these christian say. When you listen to Daemon, you get the sensation of knowing that something evil will soon come to earth and rise as god itself.

Okay, my last thoughts about the brutal hit, This Is Exile. To me, other deathcore releases doesnt't stand a chance so far with the godly album. If you want something that will get you pumped and ready for a fight, or something aggressive, you got it with Father Of Lies all the way to Messiahbolical. Some say they use too much breakdowns, some don't, but my opinion is that these guys deserve to do what they love best and they have done a dang good job of it!
