Pretty good, but not as good as some of the other metal records I have listened to recently.
I always expect bad stuff when I see something tagged as deathcore, but I'm happy that I'm usually wrong, and this record keeps proving that mistake of mine. This is an impressive effort that brings up elements from post-metal, djent and deathcore into a punisher 51 minutes album, with huge and heavy riffs that sounds monstrous, and a "satisfying" vocal delivery, something that tends to sound uninteresting for me with this type of sound.
