I bought this CD about 2 weeks ago and I have to say that it's really a masterpiece. It's mainly 5 normal-length songs and a 28-minute long song (divided into 6 parts). The music style sounds to me like a mixture of Sikth, Fellsilent, and Tool, but with a lot more clean vocals and thoughtful melodies than Sikth or Fellsilent.
Not a weak song on the whole album and I have to say that every single song rules.
One of the things that really impressed me was the bonus DVD. Usually bonus DVDs have maybe 10-20 minutes of live footage or a short "making" feature, but this DVD had around 80-90 minutes of stuff. The best part was that they did the entire 28-minute long song "Concealing Fate" in the studio (kind of different than the album version).
One of the more mellow songs (this is part of what is on the DVD):

Maybe the heaviest song on the album (also from the same part of the DVD):

I really liked it, and they fucking kill it live! Seen them on the LXD tour with Monuments and Periphery.
Favourite song is Concealing Fate Pt.2: Deception
