Lordaeron - Sacrosanct (2010)

I wasn't too enthusiastic about this release before actually listening to it. But when I did, I realized that this is some awesome tech-ish death metal with just a slight touch of black metal. Nothing in particular stands out here, but the technicality and the overall feel of the album are extraordinary.

Blasting drums and awesome guitars with ever-changing paces. Dual vocals with occasional grunts and pig squeals. Great production with only a few sound samples just to add some atmosphere to the whole thing.

All in all, a surprisingly good release. Really digging it.
