    I was wondering if anyone had picked this one up yet.

    I've had it for almost a week and still haven't found time to listen to it properly. However, what I have heard is excellent. I especially like track 2. I am a little surprised that there are absolutely no all out metal parts in it.

    Well this is supposed to be their 70's era prog rock album, i.e. not metal, and it's really good. My personal favorite track is "To Rid the Disease."
     
  3. didn't their last cd just come out not too long ago?

    Yeah, "Deliverance" came out in November. I'm sorta starting to see "Deliverance" and "Damnation" as sort of sister albums. They're not really connected lyrically, but the sounds are pretty much polar opposites. "Deliverance" is almost completely metal while there is no metal at all to be found on "Damnation". Both however, are top notch albums.

    Great album.
