It doesn't take long to figure out that Czechian Heaving Earth is fans of Hate Eternal. There are many very obvious references to Erik Rutan & Co in the music. Not that it's a bad thing taking inspiration from the Americans, but it doesn't provide the music with much identity. When this is said Heaving Earth does play their death metal competently. A lot of the riffs sound like they've could have been written by Erik Rutan himself.

The Czechs do however blend in a few things that could be more in the vein of Immolation. It adds to the diversity, but not exactly to the ingenuity. The songs are all quite varied and to a degree I find Heaving Earth a little more appealing than their idols in Hate Eternal. If you like death metal played like Hate Eternal do, then Heaving Earth is not a bad pick, but other than that there's not too much to find here.
