Dark sound effects start off the album before going into more of a heavier and technical direction which also uses a decent amount of melody and you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording and when the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard.
While the first track is all instrumental the other songs bring in vocals and when guitar solos and leads are utilized they are d one in a very technical style and there is also a great amount of death metal growls present throughout the recording and the tracks also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
Black metal screams can also be heard at times and as the album progresses atmospheric elements are used more often while some of the songs are very long and epic in length and a later song also brings in brief use of clean guitars while some of the fast riffs also use a decent amount of tremolo picking.
Polyptych creates anther recording that remains true to the brutal and technical style of blackened death metal from their previous release, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark and philosophical themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Polyptych and if you are a fan of brutal and technical blackened death metal, you should c heck out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Scars Of the Modern Age" "The Decadent's mirror" "Lexicon Of Oppression" and "Defying The Metastasis". 8 out of 10.
