If you are a fan of Cryptopsy go pick up this album immediately. With that out of the way, on to a greater description of the band and album. Depths of Depravity originally went by the name Brutal Masturbation. I am assuming they changed their name to be taken more seriously since Brutal Masturbation sounds more like a fun Friday night as opposed to a band's name. Depths of Depravity plays brutal technical death metal very well, and also very similarly to Cryptopsy during their None So Vile peak.

The album starts off with a somewhat bizarre instrumental intro before blasting your face off with the first track. The vocalist, Péter Jakab, lets out a Lord Worm style shriek at the start of the first track letting you know this is one brutal album. The songs have lots of interesting changes in time with lots of breakdowns for bass solos. The way the music pauses allowing the bass to take over makes the music really interesting and enjoyable to listen to over and over again. The album doesn't feel boring because the songs all are very intricate and have unique parts to them while never leaving the realm of death metal.

While listening to this album I found myself headbanging to it listen after listen. It packs as much punch the 20th time listening to it as it did the first time. This is an album that will stay in your CD player and not move any time soon. In my opinion Cryptopsy have gone down the shitter after first losing Lord Worm following None So Vile, but Depths of Depravity have produced a technical death metal album as good, if not better, than anything Cryptopsy have done. Look out for this band to become an icon in technical death because they slay that damn much. Highly recommended to anyone even remotely interested in death metal.

Note: My copy also came with the band's entire first album, Into the Decay, in mp3 format.
