Immolation - Kingdom of Conspiracy (2013)
Stylistically KOC is the natural continuation of the band's two previous releases. There's no big change in sound or direction. The only real flaw here is that some of the songs lack a standout identity and tend to bleed into one another. Five songs in and you're still thinking you're on the first or second track. Not a big deal and usually the more you familiarize yourself with an album that sort of thing tends to iron itself out. I mean fuck, this album was just released today! Give it some time.
Again, this is a solid Immolation album that will sit quite comfortably alongside the rest of their catalog (although I gotta say, that cover is fucking terrible) and unless you're an abnormally anal fuck, KOC should satisfy your hunger until the next album comes rolling down the hill a couple of years from now.
