This album is very entertaining. It might creep you out at times, even confuse you, but that doesn't mean you can't sit down and enjoy the entire album. The album seems to have it's own life, it's dark and sometimes loud feelings bursting out to your ears. I really enjoy the fast paces in some of the songs, especially near the end of Schism, the hit single off the album. This album might not be as heavy and loud as their previous one, but that doesn't hurt it whatsoever from being a great album anyway. The artwork of the album is very wierd, with the booklet clear paper with human anatomy and wierd symbols with it and such. It gets wierder when you close it and then look through it.
The last track, something I will not spoil, certainly puts a question mark above the head.
1. The Grudge
2. Eon Blue Apocalypse
3. The Patient
8. Ticks and Leeches
13. Faaip DE OIAD
No, those aren't spelling errors. This album sure is unique, and Mantra and Parabola sure do prove it, with their wierd sound effects and dark guitars and bass. This album follows the hype, and then some. But not everyone will enjoy it, especially those who listen to more pop rock bands. But this album is better than any album they'll ever make.
