Speaking of dynamics, "Horoskripture" features a great deal of texture and mood to the all out brutality of the rhythm section. Ambient keyboards hover in the background as the guitars crush coal into diamond. The vocals, in typical death metal fashion, spit venom at the religious right, all while the band lay down punishment upon punishment. The howls of torment around the 3:00 mark convey that something special necessary to convince me that these guys mean what they say. But, more importantly, the band takes this crazy left hand turn with less than a minute in the song. The keyboards reappear, taking a more predominant role, creating an eerie Middle Eastern vibe, and then the guitars slide back into the mix and lay down a phenomenal groove riff that will undoubtedly get a crowd moving in a counter clockwise direction. Great power to this tune!
