Possibly my favourite metal band currently recording. This is another tough set full of declamatory vocals, ear-scorching axe licks that definitely take no prisoners, and lyrics that eschew rabid fundamentalist sloganeering in favour of thought provoking looks at the bitter reality of life without God. Here are songs about fortune tellers with crystal balls and no answers, spiritual warfare (of course) and a searing song "Little Secrets" which poignantly speaks of child abuse. One for every metal head.
