"Leading the Blind is an uncompromisingly heavy album, hurling out technical material with the force of a speeding truck." - MetalMouth.net
Rare are the ultra technical albums able to be something else than a simple display of a very high-level of musicianship and a ton of complex riffs thrown one after the other. Rare are also the debut releases able to already show a real personality and a great sense of song-writing. Years Of Tyrants' Leading the Blind avoids the first and has the second: a very technical, at times ultra brutal, kind of Deathcore that has a soul, that's able to carry emotions, be them violence, frustration or, much more rare in this style, melancholy and sadness.
