After a few listens, I think Senior Fellows' new release has pushed their sludge-core in a more chaotic and complicated direction. The more metallic riffs of earlier recordings have become Meshuggah-like in their percussiveness and atonality. That is fine with me. There may be less to grab hold of in these intentionally disorienting song structures but they are still thought-provoking and massively heavy.
Favorite track: STRUCTURAL INTEGRITY IN AN AGE OF FALLING EMPIRE.
