[EDITOR’S NOTE: Yeah, we’ve already published multiple reviews of The Living Infinite, but this isn’t exactly a new one. This is what DGR cooked up when he ran his own review, originally published on our site here, through Gizoogle.net. He gizoogled the Comments on his original review, too. They’re at the bottom of this thing. I’m thinking that henceforth we’ll just do this with all of DGR’s reviews before we publish them the first time.]
(In dis post we present DGR’s take on tha freshly smoked up double-album by Sweden’s Soilwork.)
When it was initially announced dat Soilwork would be releasin a thugged-out double mixtape I be thinkin dat a pimpin’ phat chunk of our asses metal bloggin morons did a cold-ass lil collectizzle half groan all up in tha prospect of dat much Soilwork noize hittin all up in tha same time.

Imagine then our erection when Soilwork busted out “Spectrum Of Eternity” as tha lead-off cold lil’ woo wop from Da Livin Infinite. It was exciting. Not only did tha crew sound rejuvenated yo, but there was some seriously heavy noize goin on there – suttin’ dat previously had just been reserved ta a lil’ small-ass batch of joints like “Blind Eye Halo”. It was weird n’ refreshin as a muthafucka ta do suttin’ dat our crazy asses hadn’t done up in a incredibly long time, which was ta move a Soilwork release high up on da most thugged-out anticipated mixtapes list.
