The spirit of this album is based within the death-meta style, although with some parts with black-metal, including some influence of the thrash-metal roots. Higher musical creativity, better sound quality, direct feelings in the lyrics inspired on the war, pain and the constant embrace with the death. Bands like Carcass, Death and Morbid Angel were a big influence.
