"So, this EP is only for the OBITUARY fans and the die hard collectors. Why is that? Because the four tracks contained in here are not something you "need" to have, but something you either want to have or you just are not that interested in "filler" releases. What you can find in this EP release is - in my humble opinion - nothing to get too excited about. Two new songs that are going to be in the new album which will be out next year as John Tardy stated, a CELTIC FROST cover and a newly recorded version of the OBITUARY classic "Slowly We Rot". No need to comment the re-recording of the classic song, since you can easily understand that the only thing you get is the song with a better quality. The CELTIC FROST cover? Well, nothing amazing. Just OBITUARY playing an old, classic, well known song.
What about the new songs? To tell you the truth, they did not manage to get my full attention. As it seems the "rotten" maniacs are still driving on the same road. They still follow the "Xecutioner’s Return" path. "Left To Die" is definitely a more than decent OBITUARYslower than death riffing and bestial vocals, but regarding "Forces Realign", well it is a huge piece of garbage. So, why buy this thing? You can just wait for the album to come out, except if you are so desperate to have one cover and a re-recorded version of an old song. Oh, and a video for the song "Evil Ways" which comes off of "Xecutioner’s Return"."
