"Implosion of Pain" is as dramatic and atmospheric as it is aggressive. Although I myself am not a connoisseur of Death metal, I did find that there were many interesting musical moments on this release. The opening track, "Lift Off" is primarily an intro for the second track, "Lost Moon". I found it unusual because it is a sound collage of audio samples and effects set to electronica. Not a single guitar note, and certainly not metal! Then "Lost Moon" kicks in with a pounding ferocity and some very cool little musical parts interjected throughout. That said, I'm not a huge fan of the vocal delivery here. I like to think that I'm pretty open minded to all styles of vocals. But I found that the wavering cadence of both the distorted and (barely audible) spoken vocal track were detracting from rather than complimenting the music. There's a lot of creativity happening on "Implosion of Pain" and that makes it an interesting album. There no shortage of talent here.
