"Raw, hard, grinding, pounding, heavenly...I could go on, but there's gotta be at least one complete sentence in here somewhere. Although this isn't the greatest metal CD I've ever heard, it's certainly the most inspiring. The music itself is pure Mortification madness; pulse-pounding, inhuman drum beats, driving guitar, and motoring-right-along bass. And don't forget Steve Rowe's unmistakable growling vocals! That's Basic Metal 101, folks, and these guys get an A. They experiment with several different tempos and pull them all off very well. Not only that, the songs' lyrics are uplifting and send a no-nonsense spiritual message.What makes the album so inspiring, though, is what's printed in the lyrics insert. Lead vocalist/bassist Steve gives a testimony that's so riveting it's almost beyond belief. Before the lyrics, Steve shares the story of his near-two-year bout with lymphatic leukemia, a deadly form of cancer. It simply has to be read to be believed. It will renew the faith of the most spiritually suffering believer; it definitely did it for me. From this experience came the two most beautiful songs on the album, "Visited By an Angel" and "Raw is the Stonewood Temple". This isn't just a metal album, it's a testament. Experience it for yourself, and join the metal crusade."
Death metal meets classic metal

"This album will appeal greatly to the fan of the old style Mortification. Those fans of the "Scrolls of the Megilloth" and "Post Momentary Affliction" albums will especially be attracted to this album. Steve Rowe and company combine the sounds of death and grindcore metal with the sounds of classic metal. It's like Cannibal Corpse meets Metallica or even at times Cannibal Corpse meets Iron Maiden. This is a great album for the fan of both death metal and classic metal."

"This is awesome, I wondered where Steve was going to get brilliant as usual stuff from. Influence is my favourite but this album was well received because of their other albums being listened to a little too much previously. The whole albums rocks but is not as heavy as some of their previous works. Buy it and recommend it , you won't be disappointed!"
