Nice to acquire some more barely passable background metal to add to my barely passable background metal collection.

its just like every other shitty and not creative metal album. but with a little... but veeery little bit of creativity.

My biggest problem with this album is the fact that it is incredibly forgettable. Sure, everything sounds pleasant and the performances are great, but absolutely nothing stands out. The album utilizes the loud/soft dynamic so often it becomes a joke. Still, a pretty decent record and I kinda got what I was expecting.

While I’m still not a fan of some of the elements of Soilwork’s music, and there are so many cheesy moments here, I can’t help but feel like when this album is good, it’s one of the more adventurous releases in a while from the band.

Give A Listen To: “Arrival”, “Full Moon Shoals”, “When The Universe Spoke”, “The Wolves Are Back In Town”, “The Ageless Whisper”, “You Aquiver”

I don't usually look at metal music so this was an interesting listen for me. I got to say the guitar work on this is absolutely amazing it goes hard. But god I was not a fan of the vocals. They keep switching from screaming to singing and it just doesn't sound good together. But I can look past it for that guitar it's just so good.

Best song: Bleeder Despoiler
Worst song: Witan

Soilwork does so much right on this record, riffs, drums, vocals, production, it just sounds great. Swedish melodic death metal is still alive and kicking and I can’t get enough of it.

After the intro track, ... read more

Probably my favorite metal album of 2019 so far. I thought Children of Bodom's album would be 2019 Melodeath AOTY, but Verkligheten is giving CoB a run for their money.

Absolute masterpiece. The proof that heavy metal can also have beautiful melodies even at its highest power. Such a great moment of noisy perfection, feeling this huge meteor of sound crushing me. Makes me want to conquer the world.
