I have accumulated many personal reviews while listening to albums. My reviewing style is non-conventional and was only intended for myself. Sometimes I will only use one sentence to describe an album if I feel that is all that's required. Other times I will review an album while I'm still listening to it, leading to a song-by-song review of the album (bringing the size of the review to nearly dissertation-level). There are times when I will even come back to a review to add information that I didn't know when originally writing the review. The point is that I won't edit my reviews to make them more readable or conventional. My reviews are always a direct result of what I was feeling when I wrote them and I want to let that feeling come through.

Aborted - Strychnine.213 [2008]

The production has taken a bit of a side-step. It's not as in your face heavy as S&A, but it's more clear. This is a strange album… it's partly a return to form with more grinding elements and style that I'm used to with the older albums, but it also incorporates more accessible and melodic riffs (which I'm not really a fan of). There are many more solos on this album as well. There's still plenty of brutality to be found on this album, but much of the writing has lost its sting.

Rating: 7.5
