When I read the long band name and the title I was certain that Success Will Write Apocalypse Across The Sky was just another of those annoying metalcore-wants-to-be-death-metal-bands, but thankfully that is not how it is. The band includes people from Dehumanized, Filth Porn and Bodies In The Gears Of The Apparatus and that doesnít exactly signalize something soft and mellow. The music is also death metal with lots of grind parts, but the Americans donít just blast away. Songs like "Colossus" and the sampled "Retrograde and the Anointed" show this. There are many samples integrated in the music and it works very well. None of these have a downbeat effect on the brutality and energy of the songs, on the opposite.

Thereís a good interaction between the fast and the more moderate in the music. This can be heard on songs like "Despot" and "Of Worms, Jesus Christ, and Jackson County Missouri". In general itís like that on most of The Grand Partition and the Abrogation of Idolatry. Success Will Write Apocalypse Across The Sky is not very different from what you hear out on labels like Relapse Records and Willowtip Records. The band has the same high standard and brutal feel that you hear from most bands on those labels. If you like brutal music with a few peculiar inputs here and there then The Grand Partition and the Abrogation of Idolatry is a very good effort.
