preview- review by Matthew "Newbreed99" Haumschild___
I'd like to start out by saying that this is one badass album. I would also like to add that this was a hard CD to write about. This isn't the typical concept album where there's a story behind it like something that King Diamond or Dream Theater would do. Most critics frown upon albums like this mainly for the sole purpose of the average listener can't just stick the CD in and turn it to track 4 and just be blown away. This album isn't like that. With Constitution of Treason, anyone can easily put in this disc and turn it to whatever track and just rock out, hands down.
Into The Wasteland sounds like all the other songs on this album. To sum it up with only a few words, I'll say that it's,
hard, brutal and very aggressive. Does it rock? Yes and no, I could see my self kicking everyone's ass in HALO with this song in the background. The Lonely Dead is at the beginning of Article two and as cool as this is to listen to, I'd have to say that this track too has an awesome intro much like track 1. Only this track gives off the feeling that something horrible has just happened and it puts the listener into a different mood. It also seems as if Byron has stepped up on a soap box and is preaching to the masses to this song which is very unlike him to do judging by most of the other tracks I have heard. Byron also shows off more in this track than he does in others, his awesome new melodic singing voice which again is a nice change up from his hard-core scream. This track is well worth listening to and I personally think it's the best on the CD.
The next track, Divinity is just mind blowingly aggressive. I could seriously see a very violent pit opening up to this track if they'd play this live. In this song, the guitars a bit more melodic like something one would see in a melodic death metal band. I also have to mention that this track
contains a lot of drama in it to which adds to the concept part of the album. And the last track,
Crucify Your Beliefs summed up in one word is aggressive. It totally puts the finishing touches on the rest of the CD.
