Jack O There is just something about the sound that Botch produces on this album that makes so easy for me to listen to it over and over again. Favorite track: Transitions From Persona to Object.

Fffffuck. Favorite track: Saint Matthew Returns to the Womb.

Nick Zaratkiewicz If you like music thats mathy, heavy and filled with energy with hardcore aesthetics this will definitely satisfy! Favorite track: Saint Matthew Returns to the Womb.

Daniel Deck Even better than the debut. Again every song is killer. My favorite is probably the closer, because it's 11 minutes of perfection instead of just 3 to 6 like the rest of the songs Favorite track: Man the Ramparts.

Unless you've been living under a rock that's underneath another even bigger rock in a cave in the middle of nowhere, you probably already know what's up with this milestone of an album. Initially released in the year two grand, Botch's final full-length was/is the kind of devastating metallic hardcore explosion that the term "metallic hardcore" could/can only aspire to. In fact, these dudes nailed it so hard that the bands that came afterward had to start calling themselves "metalcore" out of respect.
