I would seriously enjoy this record so much more if the vocals were so robotic and cyber-ish,

Average: 7.4/10


When the robotic vocals aren't a thing this is good
Closing Thoughts: Pretty hit or miss. The instrumental work on these tracks are all phenomenal but the vocals were so spotty. The robotic effect on some of them were really odd and didn't fit at all, but the more hardcore and harsh singing did them justice. Overall decent prog metal.
