A very heavy and melodic sound starts off the album along with some high pitched screams that bring a black metal feeling to the recording while the music style from the instruments are in a more death metal direction and the guitar riffs and leads incorporate great amounts of melody into their musical style.
There seems to be a great amount of modern metal elements in their music at times along with a mixture of black metal screams and death metal growls and the band also have a great amount of blast beats in the faster sections of their music along with powerful sounding bass lines and some of the later tracks utilize small amounts of acoustic guitars which bring in a post metal feeling.
As the album progresses the music gets more diverse with along with a couple of the tracks adding in symphonic sounding synths and a few instrumentals with one beign all acoustic and the title track is very long and epic in length as well as having the vocals make their return as well as adding in spoken word parts and the last track adds psychedelic and prog sounds into their heavy and melodic musical style.
Ambient Death have a very diverse sound that combines melodic black and death metal together while also mixing in a great amount of heaviness, the production sounds very powerful for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover dark, anti religion and philosophical themes.
In my opinion Ambient Death are a very great sounding melodic blackened death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Apotheosis Of The Hangman" "Dismembering the Image of God" and "All Too Human". 8 out of 10.
