The Faceless – Autotheism

The Faceless. What is there to say about them that hasn't already been said? Starting out as a technical and progressive deathcore band, they devastated the genre with their debut album Akeldama. Then they matured and moved away from that, becoming 100% tech death, melting faces and expectations with 2008's stellar Planetary Duality. But that was 4 years ago. The field has changed. It's been quite a while, and expectations have been raised higher and higher; reaching a near-breaking point. Will The Faceless deliver? Well, the time has come, and the answer is not a simple yes or no, depending on the expectations of the listener. Autotheism is a very intriguing album. It is definitely the band's most ambitious effort, which is saying a lot considering their previous output. Well, do they sink, or do they rise even higher? It's finally time to find out.
