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.

Nightrage - A New Disease is Born [2007]

This album as a whole is both a step up and a step down from SV. It certainly has more of a unique style, but it also tried to blend in some more modern filth with it. While that approach works occasionally, often it will cause a parts of frustration. It seems like they will never fully recapture what I loved about SV. Even so, the songwriting is much improved and more polished than before, and it is closer to SV. I like that they are using some more of the clean vox again. However, the production has suffered a bit with the guitars being much less clear than on their previous albums.

Rating: 7.5
