Sounds familiar but way better

"Well...if you take Death's "Human", Cynic's "Focus", and a little Yngwie Malmsteen and mix it together and record a cd based off that, you will undoubtedly get Nocturnus' "Thresholds". I can't even begin to describe this cd. The drums are fast and change speed, the keyboards are OUTSTANDING, the bass is good, but what really stands out from most death metal bands are the razor sharp guitars. The solos, harmonies, rhythm, all are there and pack a punch. I am almost going to say this is progressive but Dream Theater makes that term sound ambigously OVERDONE. I can't believe I waited until 13 years after it came out to get it. A MUST HAVE for any metal fan."
One of the best Death Metal records ever!

"No joke. From the underrated, seldom heard (but often heard of) band, comes this total mind-blowing epic masterpiece of sound and fury. Each song is intricately constructed, full of amazing riffs executed with technical precision. This recording is just an incredible image-inducing barrage of heavy guitars, solos, and eerie keyboard cuts; the songs flow together to create a constant story of demon-robots, unholy science and magical machinery - man, it causes the imagination to come to life. Every song is great, especially Climate Contoller, Aquatica, Subterranean Infiltrator and Tribal Vodoun. Nocturnus is truly original, getting away from that over-used satanic mumbo-jumbo that is so common, and going with a science-fiction, cerebral assault. It's cool. Pick it up."
Superb in every extent!

"Wow! I see why it was so hard to get a copy of this. It's beyond great..and has become one of my personal fave albums of all time! Nocturnus really shows their talents in the epic piece of pure brilliance...the keyboards,drumming,and guitar work are almost unbeaten by any other Death metal band....this is a superior album! No regrets. Thresholds is definitely Nocturnus' best album and one of the best death metal cds period..and in one song the echoing effect of the vocalist voice gives it a cool cerebral sound and the sci-fi subject matter makes for an interesting listen...try to find this'll love it! It's a shame this band only has 3 albums I know of..I want more! Thresholds is's darn good....pure brilliance! Will not dissapoint!"
