The return to the hellish noises that started the track as a bridge into the brutal slam about two-and-a-half minutes in also makes for a punishing turn that allows the performance a chance to naturally build itself back up from the ground, which the group easily accomplishes to wrap the song up with.
The rest of this release is about what you come to expect from the fine folk of Cryptopsy.
Complex chord progressions litter the performance, as does a brief nightmarish guitar solo, on par with the delivery of Origin. The horror themed concoction offers little reprieve once it starts following the roughly fifteen second long eerie guitar introduction, only picking up in tension and vile nature the deeper in your go.
And then there's "Halothane Glow", which is another that does blend together some mathcore-grade riff work, blast beats, and even a Meshuggah-like sense of aggression at times, such as around a minute in. But, the one thing The Book of Suffering - Tome 1 really has going for it is the intensity behind the music and vocals. There's rarely a moment among these four tracks that ever lets you catch your breath, pummeling you every second it has the opportunity to with nightmarish aural landscapes and horror-themed brutality.
It's impossible to stand there and claim Cryptopsy haven't tightened as a group since their self-titled effort, and it's great to see the band continue to grow and nurture the brand of technical brutality that made them a death metal household name in the first place. However, there's no denying "Framed by Blood" does put a small shadow of fear in long term fans that the deathcore side of the group's experimentation may not be entirely dismissed.
That said, The Book of Suffering - Tome 1 stands as the sort of outing we've come to expect the great Cryptopsy to turn out, and, as a whole, it doesn't disappoint.
