This record sounds a lot like listening to an Integrity record backwards. Does that mean anything to you? What Pale Creation did was take the "Holy Terror" formula, slowed it down, added some atmostphere, and made it much more interesting from a technical standpoint. While Cleveland pioneers Integrity and Ringworm are about as straightforward-heavy as it gets, Pale Creation added challenging mathematics to the equation, resulting in a very different experience indeed. The feel is more trance-like than cathartic. This record doesn't kick your ass, it fucks with you.
I'm going against my normal rule of only high bit rate dowloads today. You can take the shitty quality one for free, or pay $5 for the HQ one from the label. Also, I just watched Tron: Legacy and it's pretty fuckin great!
