The atmosphere is wonderfully on-point in The Way of All Flesh. The whole experience is dark and brooding, but in a subtle way that allows for a lot of reflection when hearing the poetic lyrics. Frontman Joe Duplantier said the album was supposed to be the band's meditation on death, and the powerful feeling of immersion ensures that he isn't kidding around.
The Way of All Flesh is progressive, brutal, poetic, distorted, and magnificently written. If any of those qualities catch your eye (or your ear), get this masterpiece if you haven't yet.
