Label: Electric Generation Recordings
Per usual, the London-based, intercontinental videogame-metal gearheads are most stomachable at their silliest: cartoon cat-and-mouse-chase soloing and Top Gun rah-rah ("Take another shot! Show me what you got!") in "No More"; suspense-theme start and arcade electronica doo-dads through "Extraction Zone"; an absurd cover of Johnny Cash's "Ring of Fire." Elsewhere, it's the usual disjointed axe exercises and aimless anthems reaching for stars at the top of Marc Hudson's lungs -- with Trivium's Matt Heafy chiming in three times (and five bonus cuts stretching out the Special Edition).
