The album opens with the aptly named instrumental “The Inception.” At this point, it seems obligatory for deathcore records to begin with a soft instrumental introduction before introducing heavy elements in a following track. Circle of Contempt sidesteps this somewhat trite approach with an electronic atmosphere that evolves into a shred-heavy, angular groove, creating a fully realized, intelligent instrumental that feels akin to Shokran. The first half of this fast-paced record expands from this point, using electronic synths and drums to build into incredibly technical and whiplash-inducing stop/start grooves that pick up where former label mates Veil of Maya and Born of Osiris’s last records left off.
