AllMusic Review by

The fifth studio album from the grease-painted Swedish death/industrial/progressive metal ensemble, Hail the Apocalypse was put together in Karma Sound Studios, Bang Saray, Thailand and mixed by Jay Ruston (Anthrax, Stone Sour). Punishing, cinematic, and dutifully evoking images of the end times (the first single is the title cut), Avatar stirs up a flurry of sonic brutality that blends the streamlined, piston-like pump of Rammstein, the provocative and uncompromising metallic charge of System of a Down, and the macabre theatrics of Marilyn Manson and Alice Cooper.
