An anomaly is defined as something that is irregular or peculiar, a break from the norm. Cephalic Carnage delivers yet again another anomaly of a CD with their newest release. This CD has it all, blasts of grind, slow doom parts, some hardcore breakdowns, extremely technical passages, bits of tranquility and even some rock 'n roll thrown in the mix. The thing I love most about Cephalic Carnage is their ability to draw you in with a riff, then smack you in the face with an oar with some bizarre twist, and this happens again and again on Anomalies. The perfect follow up to 2002's Lucid Interval, you should put Anomalies high on your wish list. Better yet, run to the local music store and demand a copy.

In a word, brilliant.
