To start right off... wow! This album is great. It is a thrill ride from beginning to end. Orchestrations, choir chants, breakbeats, electronica, heavy guitar riffs, concertina/accordion, this album has just about all flavors of soundscape.
It’s heavy, there are lots of orchestrations, and the usage of electronica is great and tasteful. There are areas of chanting and choruses.
Everything is so well composed it’s extremely hard to pick out a favorite track. The track “Very Noise” actually sticks out for me, it’s a less than 2 minute interlude track, and it is just jam packed with elements of electonica, breakbeats, heavy guitars. 
Heavy elements of Middle Eastern influences are all over the album. Especially on “Camel Dancefloor”, where it starts with a Middle Eastern guitar riff, and has lots of wubs throughout for that dubstep feel. There is zero doubt that if you have a killer subwoofer to play this album through, you could probably shake your house off of its foundation. About three quarters of the way through is when the heavy guitar riffs come in and almost completely change the entire song before bringing all of the electronica back in to close it out.
“Parpaing” is a great death metal track; it features George “Corpsegrinder” Fisher providing vocals. He kills it like always, Corpsegrinder is a legend. This deep cut really describes where the genre is heading towards. The techno fills are reminiscent of some 80’s video games gone demonic.
“Musette Maximum”... it sounds like walking into a heavy metal circus. I was transported to a freakshow meets the Trans-Siberian Orchestra.
“Himalaya Massive Ritual” sounds like a song that would play in a horror movie. It would probably kick in while the group was lost and wandering through a snow covered forest landscape, and as they cross through a large wall of brush is when they spot it. A large, seemingly abandoned encampment that has obviously been the site of a recent human sacrifice. The area is littered with bones strewn about from many past sacrifices, some have been lashed together, like you would sticks, into symbols that hang from the surrounding trees. It's not long before the group knows they need to leave, but by that time it’s too late. They’ve been captured, they will not make it out alive, and no one will ever know what happened to them.
“Paranoid Bulldozer Italiano” drops the album straight back into an electronica album before transitioning into a heavier, death metal styling, then into heavy metal opera and closes back in death metal. Wow, what a ride!
“Kung-Fu Chevre” walks you out the door through that heavy metal circus sound and feel one more time before leaving you wondering what it was you just listened to for the last 55 minutes.
Overall a great album… it’s a hell of a ride all the way through it’s almost 1 hour length. You will for sure travel an emotional, sometimes tense, journey down the aural pathways provided.
